I can confirm this on Ubuntu 12.10. With every click of a menu, any menu, INSERT menu grows by an entire length - and it was so bad on mine that it scrolled off the page about 10x the menu's normal length. And that was only after a few clicks on several menus. Several lockups as well due to this.

I had posted this prior to discovering this bug page.

Thank you for any help on this,

Also, please disregard my comment in my linked-to thread about installing RUMOR - that apparently does not relate to this bug because other users have this same menu-bug issue and they don't have RUMOR installed (as I did at first).

This bug seems to bite if you use unity. Using gnome it does not occur.

Correct. If I log out and log back in as GNOME the bug does not occur - it seems to be w/ Unity only, yup.
