Description of problem:
If you click on the Gnome menu on the Gnome panel and leave the menu
appearing on the screen, pressing the "print screen" key performs
nothing. Thus it is not possible to perform a screen shot of the
gnome menu (which I need to report another bug. :( ).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Gnome menu and keep it open.
2. Press the "print screen" key.
3. Notice that no screenshot is taken.
The command line approach (something like)
then bring up the menu and wait
should work (see man xwd). It will at least get you your picture for
the other report
Open up GIMP, set it to take a delayed screenshot, say, 5 seconds,
then switch to another workspace and open the gnome menu.

right? Now that I understand what is going on, may I suggest that as
a solution, Gnome should always forward the printscreen key to the
window manager? After all, I cannot figure out when it would be used
for anything else, and if an application would really need to reassign
the key, it could call a special Gnome function to indicate that it
must catch the printscreen key.
