Bug Description

[Test Case]
1. Download the main.cpp and build as noted in comment #2
2. Run the test application
   -> Verify that the Disabled menu cannot be accessed

[Regression Potential]
Broken menu clicking.

Original description:

The unity-2d panel seems to ignore the "enabled" property on top-level application menus. As an example, the Thunderbird compose window disables the "Insert" and "Format" menus until the main text entry area in the compose window is selected. However, these menus can still be accessed in unity-2d when they are meant to be disabled, whereas they are correctly disabled in unity-3d. I've attached a video showing the problem
