Reassigning kdebase-workspace (unless the original kmenu-gnome was 

And, I'm having a hard time understanding, esp, since my classic menu doesn't 
seem to do as you describe.  Maybe a screenshot would help?
Comment 2 Anne 2008-04-22 16:02:11 EDT
Tried to get a screenshot, but keyboard shortcut didn't seem to work, and can't
take mouse off menu without losing it.  Suggestions?
Comment 3 Anne 2008-04-22 16:03:28 EDT
I have classic menu at right-hand corner of panel.  Could this be the cause?  In
the morning I'll see whether I can move it next to the dolphin menu.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-04-22 16:07:47 EDT
ksnapshot has "Snapshot delay" option, to grab "region" or "window under mouse",
that's what I usually do.
Comment 5 Anne 2008-04-22 17:03:48 EDT
That's the one I tried, but you have to hit the button to raise the menu, and at
that point you lose the ability to define the region.

Comment 7 Anne 2008-05-21 10:48:02 EDT
I can confirm that this problem relates to having a classic menu at the
right-hand corner.  Moving it left removes the problem.
Comment 8 Steven M. Parrish 2008-06-23 16:44:50 EDT
If this is still an issue with KDE 4.0.5 could you please file upstream at
http://bugs.kde.org and add upstream info to this report.  We will monitor
upstream for resolution
Comment 9 Anne 2008-06-27 06:53:44 EDT
Done - Bug #165101
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-09-06 14:14:05 EDT
Thanks, will continue to track this upstream.
