Bug Description

A bug that irks me a lot since installing Quantal Quetzal, as I work in LibreOffice Writer a lot. When I open a Writer document (ODT in my test case) using the Files & Folders Lens, the app menu doesn't reveal itself when I hover my mouse over it (see attached screenshot). However, if I unfocus the window, then focus it again, the bar reveals itself as normal.

This is one of those bugs that should be fixed with a fairly high priority. It's extremely bad in terms of user experience.
