Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

For most applications (e.g. qbittorrent,nautilus,system monitor... but not for evolution!) the menu on the top panel from unity stays the same color of the theme in use and the menu items from the corresponding applications,though they are clickable,are invisible. (Reminds me of a well known bug with skype menus)

Unfortunately, I was unable to perform a Screenshot while displaying the menu's items, but I confirm that the menus are usable,though invisible...
