Transient window wrongly shows menus for its parent

Bug #674605 reported by costales on 2010-11-12
This bug affects 17 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Application Menu Indicator
indicator-appmenu (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu 10.10, 11.04, 11.10, 12.04

In an application with a modal window, Unity not blocks the access to Global Menu.

- Open an application with a modal window (by example: gufw).
- Go to menu/Edit/Preferences.
- Preferences window is a modal window (not access to the application menu).
- Access in the Global Menu to the Gufw menu: Bug! You can access to it!

You can see the screenshot.

<conscioususer> mpt, here is a summary of the situation in Precise:
<conscioususer> 1) transient without modal: global menu of parent fully accessible (imo this is ok)
<conscioususer> 2) transient with modal: global menu of parent fully accessible (bug, as the dev expects the menu not to be accessible)
<conscioususer> 3) just modal: global menu NOT accessible (so I guess it's ok)
