I would even say that this bug can crash every application. If the application programmer uses a modal dialog, she explicitely expects that no other events will be handled while the dialog is running. The fact that the main window menu can still trigger event handlers is a serious bug and will cause undefined behavior in most applications.

I am not against Unity, but the fact that serious bugs like this have existed for many months now is very discouraging (another one is that the enabled/disabled status of menu items in Qt applications is not properly updated in the global menu bar).

Please fix these bugs at least in the coming stable Ubuntu release.
