Bug description:
  [ Impact ]

  [Test Case]

  (1) enable menus in the window title bar System Settings > Appearance > Behavior > Show the menus for a window > In the menu bar
  (2) run "gsettings set com.canonical.Unity always-show-menus true" in a terminal
  (3) move the mouse around between windows

  The menus should remain displayed

  [Regression Potential]

  Any change to the menu functionality has the potential to cause
  volunteer functionality in menu behaviour.

  [Other Info]

  The fix for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS was cherry picked from the Ubuntu "Vivid
  Vervet" dev release where it has been in production use for some time
  with no apparent regression.
