Bug Description

Install unity 3.8.14 from natty-proposed and restart your session.

Test case:
1.) Start the program deluge (if not installed do "sudo apt-get install deluge" and start it afterwards)
2.) Focus the program-window of deluge and move the mouse to the global menubar
3.) Look for the inactive (greyed out) menu "Torrent" and keep clicking this item multiple times (say 4 times)
4.) The rendering of the text "Torrent" should not change in any way!
(Optional 5.) Remove the program deluge again with "sudo dpkg --purge deluge deluge-gtk")

start deluge, see there is a greyed out menu 'Torrent' keep on clicking that item, see it will become bright and bright. see the video

I don't understand what the bug here is at all, your video is too short to really communicate anything. Could you try explaining the problem better, or a more complete video?

if you keep on clicking that inactive menu the magic is shown, it becomes
brighter and thickers.

PS: guess you are using chromium since chromium's player seem to have
problems with videos uploaded from gtk-recordmydesktop

I get this too. I installed deluge and I am able to reproduce this. My first guess is that there's some clear-painting operation missing.

    - In a dual monitor setup with different resolutions, Unity places windows
      in the "dead zone" (LP: #752098)
    - Left pixel of launcher is not clickable on session start (LP: #758026)

      launcher nearly exactly (LP: #728949)
    - Dodge active window - launcher should not show when modal dialog is
      opened (LP: #718185)
    - Unity maximizes windows that don't support resize on launch (LP: #769781)
    - compiz crashed with SIGSEGV in sigc::signal_base::impl() (LP: #762801)
    - inactive menus becomes brighter on sub-sequent clicks (LP: #733740)
    - Unity crashes when dynamic quicklist dbusmenu contains a hidden menuitem.
      (LP: #759174)
    - Opening quicklist with launcher keynav returns focus to previous window
      (LP: #750781)
    - window's title does not fade in the right position (LP: #722178)
  * debian/control:
    - depends on compiz for some people upgrading (LP: #773253)
  * debian/patches/01_add_scp_to_systray.patch:
    - remove, upstream now
