Bug Description

When running the mutiny under ubuntu mate 16.10 many applications crash when you click on the screen level menu.
I should have made a complete list but caja and libreoffice are examples. If it helps close to 100% of the crash reports from my id were caused by this problem.
The problem stops if I switch to another theme.

Martin,

Yes, I am describing clicking on the Global Menu, if that is the correct
term for the top most menu. That is not happening in my current environment
(Ubuntu Mate 17.04). Since then I also had switched Panel Layouts away
from the "Mutany" to "Ubuntu Mate".
I switched back to the "Mutany" layout just now to see if I could recreate
the problem. It still is a problem. The "Mutany" layout does seem to be the
source of the problem.
The global menu populated by Caja does not react to clicks, and causes Caja
to terminate. A few seconds later (maybe up to 5) I get a crash report
saying that Ubuntu as had an internal error.

Thanks for looking at this.
