Bug Description

When a application that does not support menubar integration(like Open Office) is in focus, moving the cursor over the App title in the Menubar hides them title but does not display anything in it's place.

Desired behaviour:

If a application does not support menubar integration, moving the cursor over the menubar should not hide the application title.

In other apps a single "File" menu is displayed with a single "Close" option. This needs to be removed.

I've added the bits so if there is no menu exported by indicator-appmenu, we won't hide the title of the window. Just waiting for appmenu to stop exporting the basic "File" menu now for this to be visible to users.
