Comment 114 for bug 1532226

@Ian (ian-bradley)
You say it makes a lot of sense, but not to me, so I must have been unclear in my description of what does not make sense.

The Title bar where the menus will appear is there and taking up screen real estate whether or not you are hovering over it. The new feature (if I understand it correctly) appears to make the menus go away some of the time, and I can't imagine why that is supposed to be sensible behavior. Selecting the location of where the menus appear makes some sense, but hiding them altogether just doesn't make sense for the focal app that might want to do something...

My current theory of the bug that I saw (which I am still pretty sure is related to the one described here) is that the menu-hiding thing was somehow getting weirded out and became unable to unhide the menus when it should. My strongest evidence is that it when away when I changed the Appearance settings to disable the dynamic menu behavior. That is not conclusive both because other upgrades were still being installed (including at least one large one about 100 MB) and because I'm not even certain that I was seeing the same bug...

However, the more serious bug that seemed to be a memory leak affecting BOINC Manager has almost surely been cured. At this point I'm basically okay with 16.04 and just regard these things as teething problems--but I still haven't found any fresh new or even compelling features in 16.04... My concrete definition of compelling feature is "Would I have donated some money to help implement or support the ongoing costs of that feature?" So far I haven't found anything...
