Drop and sub menus don't always show up
Binary package hint: xorg-server
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10, and now application menus sometimes don't show up. As far as I can tell, this happens randomly for all drop and sub menus, including menus for applets/indicators in the gnome-panel, gnome-terminal, thunderbird, gedit, nautilus, and all other applications I've tested.
It seems to happen randomly, some menus display fine, but some don't display. Interestingly, when the menu doesn't appear, and you move your pointer to the place where the menu should appear, the menu suddenly appears. Also, this seems to happen once per menu, so if a specific menu didn't display, the second time you click that menu item, the menu does display, and will display properly the next times you click it. But, if you restart that application, it will start over again.
The problem doesn't happen after disabling compiz. When compiz is started again, the problem is back.
Maybe this issue came to Maverick with the new X.Org Server 1.9 release.
