Bug Description

(Edgy)
Screenshot (using PrintScreen key) does not work,
if some GTK menu is open (e.g. after clicking Gaim status chooser).

Among other this means that screenshot of https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gaim/+bug/39640/
problem cannot be made ;-)

Thank you for your feature request.

You can work around this by opening a terminal and running:

sleep 5; gnome-screenshot

that will give you 5 seconds to open the menu before taking a screenshot.
