Bug Description

Here's an issue you may not have come across. I also include a fix for the issue.

Issue can be seen while running Ubuntu MATE 16.04 beta1 as a live session, or after install.

Steps to revel the issue:
1) MATE Tweak -> Windows -> Compiz
2) MATE Tweak -> Interface -> Redmond, then select "Enable advanced menu"
3) Clicking (Panel) Menu, you will notice the advanced menu detaches from the panel, until a menu entry is selected. If doesn't happen first time, click desktop to hide the menu, then click Menu again.

In case added image attachments don't appear, please find below two screen capture image links

** Fix for above issue ***

org.compiz.profiles.mate.plugins.winrules size-matches ''class=MATE-menu.py''
org.compiz.profiles.mate.plugins.winrules size-width-values '0'

Wanted to generate a PR, but not yet experienced enough with git/github, sorry!

Thank you,
David

Forgot to mention, issue is in not connected with my Menu UI modification (seen in screen captures), issue also happens with the default MATE advanced menu.

As an aside,
now Control Centre categories are organized alphabetically,
keep expecting MATE Tweak to be organized as...

Desktop
Interface
Windows

PS: Have you noticed Control Centre is spelt "Control Center" on the advanced menu, while spelt "Control Centre" on other menus and top of control centre window?
