Top bars expand with the application window size

Bug Description

Reproduced on Xubuntu 16.04 with lp:inkscape rev. 15444.
Not reproduced with rev. 15443.

1. Launch Inkscape with the default preferences (large window size in the preferences).
2. Start resizing the window so that it's height increases.
-> The height of the menu bar increases accordingly.
3. Set View>Default to move the command bar to the top of the application.
4. Resize again.
-> Now the command bar resizes instead of the menu bar.

Regression introduced (or highlighted) with rev. 15444 "merge"

The problem is coming from telling the menu bar to request all available space when adding it to its parent box. Patch attached.

Not reproduced as described with lp:inkscape r15444, r15447 on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (GNOME desktop, Adwaita theme) - possibly requires more recent GTK+ version to reproduce (Ubuntu 14.04 ships with rather dated GTK+ 3.10.8).

The default setting in effect for size of new windows (with new prefs) is 'Maximized' btw, not 'Large'.
