Hi Patryk,

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.

which windowmaner are you using?

As others wrote, certain ones are known to cause issues. However, I do sometimes have issues with classic WindowMaker too: it often happens when several apps start at once. E.g. "gopen -a MyApp.app" causes also GWorkspace to startup and things layer wrong. Clicking first on one application, then on the other, usually sort things out and then they remain OK.
