Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

With new compiz-unity, scrubbing the global menu items of an application or the indicators in the top right will "prematurely end".

Reproduction steps:
1) Click on an indicator
2) Move mouse left and right across rest of indicators

Expected results:
Menus would all open and close like normal

Actual results:
After a few menus open and close like normal, one or two in a row will just look pressed but not open a menu until finally they don't even look pressed anymore. It 'gracefully' ends the scrub. If this sounds bizarre or you can't reproduce, I can try to make a screencast for you.

If I scrub very slowly, everything seems to work fine. It's only when I speed up that it messes up.

Happens for me too.

I just want to say that when I drag the mouse across the global menu I'm not doing it fast. Also, if I drag the mouse very slow it seems to work fine, but I would have to drag it much too slow to be productive.
