I cannot duplicate this bug at this time.

Periodically,  the Ubuntu side menu freezes when I am editing in LibreOffice writer 3.2.2.  At this point,  I cannot get to the file menu and so cannot save my file.  All the work is lost.

Please be more informative in your bug report:
- what is your ubuntu version?
- where does your LibreOffice version come? From your distribution or from LibO website?
- what do you mean by "Ubuntu side menu"? 
- have you tried to save your file by using the key shortcut ctrl+S ?

Something very useful to read: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport

Thank you!

I can confirm this same behaviour:

Ubuntu 11.04 (Gnome)
It is not limited to Writer, this happens with all of the LibO modules.

The side menu is the default launcher

After using LibO for a while, usually a few minutes will do it, the launcher will open and will not close until LibO is exited.

FYI - Using LbbO 3.4 RC2 (Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64) this problem still persists.

Opened issue w/Ubuntu also:
