Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

Bluefish has a plugin called 'snippets' that can show a second menubar that is completely user customizable. When bluefish is running under unity this menu bar never shows, even if you explicitly enable it in the menu.

This isn't a compiz bug.

It seems like bluefish is creating two GtkMenuBar widgets in its main application window. Those are removed by the menuproxy gtk module. Indicator-appmenu only displays the menu bar for the currently active toplevel window, it doesn't have a concept of subwindows which can be "active". I'm pretty sure that this would require some work in GTK to get done.

(In reality though, creating two GtkMenuBar widgets seems like a bit of an odd application design choice then)

Since the first version of the specification in May 2010, it said that "If the window has more than one menu bar, the first one encountered should be used", to avoid bugs like this. <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MenuBar#Windows_with_recognized_menus> I guess the code was missing a test case to ensure it actually behaved that way.
