Bug Description

I'm using LibreOffice 3.6.2.2 on Ubuntu 12.10 (32 bits). When creating/editing a formula with Math inside a Writer document, you can't access to the Math's menu. The only menu that is visible/accessible all the time is Writer's global menu. Under these circumstances, you can't edit the formula's font features (family, size), and many other Math options are unusable.
I think it's an issue related to the globalmenu integration for Libreoffice, since this bug isn't present on Precise.

Please, fix it. LibreOffice is a critical piece of softwate in Ubuntu.

Thanks a lot.

Roberto.

Recently verified: Math globalmenu shows an erratic behaviour. I tried working with Math inside Writer again, and this time Math's global menu appeared. However, when I closed the Math object and went back to edit my document in Writer, then Math's menu persisted and Writer's menu didn't appear.

Can also cause crashes when trying to interact with the corrupted menus. At least it crashes on my system.
