Comment 20 for bug 674138

For what is worth, I give a +1 to Lachlan Andrew. Moreover, it is so easy to fix: let the user optionally choose global menu only for maximized windows, local otherwise. In my humble opinion, it would be the best of two worlds.

Now I am forced to move the window to touch the upper bar every time I was to use the menu, or go with keyboard selection, or, but it's suboptimal, run with double menus (local and global --- that's not too bad, but I fear they will drop it).

Testing Kubuntu now, maybe that could be a solution; but this is sad, since I like Unity a lot and it will be perfect with just that little option.
