[Bug 665546] [NEW] Drop and sub menus don't always show up


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10, and now application
menus sometimes don't show up. As far as I can tell, this happens
randomly for all drop and sub menus, including menus for
applets/indicators in the gnome-panel, gnome-terminal, thunderbird,
gedit, nautilus, and all other applications I've tested.

It seems to happen randomly, most of the time menus display fine, but
sometimes they don't display. Interestingly, when the menu doesn't
appear, and you move your pointer to the place where the menu should
appear, the menu suddenly appears. Also, this seems to happen once per
menu, so if a specific menu didn't display, the second time you click
that menu item, the menu does display, and will display properly the
next times you click it. But, if you restart that application, it will
start over again.

The reason I think this is a compiz problem, is because the issue
doesn't seem to happen after running 'killall compiz'. Then, when you
start compiz again with 'compiz --replace', the issue is back again.

I've attached a screenshot to make it clearer.
