Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

When Abiword had focus and I clicked on indicator menu of battery - the indicator battery menu did not show up. Instead showed up a menu that I suppose is in the same place in abiword. This abiword menu entry is not visible, I suppose the the indicator-battery menu should have shown up.
Could this be solved by. for example showing the whole application menus on a special keypress? And in rest of the times the indicator menu would appear? Or maybe howering from left to right in application menus would whow up the rest of the menus that are hidden behind the indicator menus?
When I SEE the indicator menu, I expect the indicator menu appear, not the application menu that is invisible beneeth..

Please see screenshot attached..

The designed solution to this is to construct a menu "More" which
contains the overflow application menus.
