Josh,

Thank you for the link to the bug report and for forwarding Fred's hint!  I'll take a peek.

Seems to be an issue on some window managers, including Compiz
(Ubuntu's default WM):

Since filing the bug, I've also seen ordering issues on KWin WM
(PC-BSD w/KDE).

PikoPixel.app works around the Compiz menu-ordering issue by
manually setting all submenu windows' levels to NSMainMenuWindowLevel
- this keeps submenus in front of normal windows, but the drawback is
that submenus can then obscure the main menu (if they're moved to
overlap it).

If you're interested in figuring out a general fix & submitting a
patch, Fred Kiefer had suggested looking at setwindowlevel:: in back/
Source/x11/XGServerWindow.m (1).

Cheers,

Josh

I just installed the latest GNUstep from sources, and then compiled
and installed GWorkspace. When running GWorkspace, I found that
after I click to bring up the menus, there is a layering issue with
the submenus: the submenus appear *behind* the GWorkspace file
browser windows. So it's difficult to select the commands, e.g., to
open a file (actually, I was not successful).

This is reminiscent of one of the issues shown in the recent Windows
user experience video.

For reference, I was running Ubuntu 15.10 under VirtualBox.

Best regards,
Patryk
