Description David Balažic 2002-11-21 23:50:16 UTC
Description of Problem:

When logged in as root into gfx desktop, if I right click on the "Start Here" 
icon, select "Properties", then the "Permissions" tab and there on the "owner" 
a large menu is displayed, with the bottom half of it empty. Something like 
this :
( content made up, except for the empty lines, which are ... empty )

       | xxx      |
       | yyy      |
       | zzz      |
       | ztzt     |
       | ztzrt    |
       | ztzer    |
       | zrtzr    |
       |          |
       |          |
       |          |
       |          |
       |          |
       |          |

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

stock RHL 8.0 ( Psyche )

I think it happens with other menus of similar type too.

This is intentional so that the currently active item appears under the mouse.
It's a bit funny looking but this is also how the same menu control works
on the Mac for example.

Anyway if it changes it would be on the gnome.org level, see
