Bug Description

When you switch to empty desktop, global menu still displays the menu of the last active application.

I would expect no menu instead.

Thank you for your bug report, is nautilus running and handling your desktop? You are supposed to get the desktop special menu in those cases. Do you use unity-3d or 2d?

It is Unity 3d.

Yes, it seems enabling desktop icons in Ubuntu Tweak did the trick.
Previously it works without it, hence the problem.

Of course, it may be good to add some warning to Ubuntu Tweak to prevent
similar problems for other users.

Not sure if that helps users who inherit the option from previous versions.
