Bug Description

Global menus are broken in latest xenial and cannot be clicked.

Clicking on the menu in the unity panel will make the panel turn completely to the background color and flicker, but one still can't get the menu.

Furthermore, for windowed applications clicking the global menu will change the size of the windowed application, reducing it by a few pixels. (Easily reproducible using gnome-terminal).

Are you sure this changed with this release (7.4.0+16.04.20151102-0ubuntu1)? As I don't see anything that changed which might be affecting this.

indicator-appmenu migrated before bamf, from which it uses new symbols, due to bamf not having a correct .symbols file

This bug was fixed in the package indicator-appmenu - 15.02.0+16.04.20151028.2-0ubuntu2

indicator-appmenu (15.02.0+16.04.20151028.2-0ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Revert the previous upload as it migrated into xenial before bamf 0.5.2
    (due to a bamf bug) (LP: #1513110)
