Bug Description

Hello,

I upgraded to Trusty and activated LIM.
I was very surprised that the menu just shows on hover when the window has focus.

When the menu is window based then out of a user experience I expect that every window show the menu including on un-focused windows.

My opinion this is a bug, as my user expectation was that when locally shown it would behave like traditional menus and traditional menus can be opened directly out of a non-focused state.

Thanks
