Problem description: 
Using Ubuntu 13.04 and LibreOffice, the menu items in unity do not highlight.

Also, sometimes it is not possible to send commands by clicking on the menu items. This seems to happen at random.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install Ubuntu 13.04 and LO
2. Click on a unity menu item like "edit"
3. See if the sub-items highlight

Current behavior:
No highlights on the menu items

Expected behavior:
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Thanks for your report. Is it possible to attach screenshots that describes the problem? I don't use Ubuntu right now (so I can't test), but I think this'll increase the 'confirmation' speed of this bug.

Kind regards,

Bjoern - Mr. Ubuntu this one appears to be for you, I suspect it's not our bug but perhaps it is
