Narrow menu display (LibreOffice 5.0.2)
Since LibreOffice 5.0.0, I have a problem with the way menus are displayed on my netbook, which is a Asus EeePC 1015 (OS Lubuntu 15.04, resolution 1024x600). The screenshot seems self explanatory to me, I took it with Writer but it's the same with Calc and Impress.
This bug can be reproduced with LibreOffice 5.0.0, 5.0.1 and 5.0.2. I installed LibreOffice with the packages from https://fr.libreoffice.org, I didn't use the packages from the Linux distribution. Menus are displayed properly with LibreOffice 4.x

Regular menu display (LibreOffice 4.4)
version should indicate the earliest affected release, in this case 5.0.0
and regression has to be added to keywords since you say the bug wasn't present in 4.x
let's wait another Linux user to confirm it
I'm on Windows and I don't see that bug
This regression is still present in 5.0.3 and can also be seen in 22.214.171.124.alpha1.
This means that Linux netbooks will be stuck with the 4.6 branch and I think that will be a problem. Anyone can confirm this bug or provide a workaround ?
can you retest with latest 126.96.36.199 release?
Sorry, bug still present in 5.0.4. Also in 5.1.0 RC1
No changes for this bug in 5.0.5 and 5.1.0.
Now that LibreOffice 4.4 is no longer supported, that means I should upgrade to 5.0 or 5.1 and have this annoying display bug. Any chance someone will look into it ?
Please don't set your own bugs as NEW.

> Any chance someone will look into it ?
No one can look into something that he can't reproduce. I also tried with Lubuntu, but couldn't reproduce despite all my attempts. Maybe it's some combination of theme/fonts? Can you state the exact theme/fonts that in use on your system?
Also you could try to bisect . This could give us some hints on what is causing this problem.
(And BTW - no idea if this is related, but the minimum supported resolution according to  is 1024x768, so you're out of luck here.)
Maybe I missed some messages, but I didn't see comments telling me that someone tried and failed to duplicate this bug. So, thanks for your help :)
I tried some things on my computer. I purged all libreoffice packages and deleted my profile ($HOME/.config/libreoffice) to get a fresh start. I installed LO 5.1.0 from the website, not from Ubuntu's repository. I got the same bug.
Then, I went to Options / Display and changed Zoom from 100% to 110% (my interface is in french, I hope I give the correct names). The menu displayed properly. I turned the option back to 100% and it was still ok.
The funny thing is : if I close LO and open it again, the bug reappears. I need to get to Options and do the same procedure again.
I use Lubuntu default settings (theme/font), no specific custom change from me.
I can confirm this with LibreOffice 188.8.131.52/Ubuntu 15.10, with resolution set to 800x600 (but not with 1024x768). I can also confirm this with an MSI Wind having native resolution 1024x600, same as the reporter's.
While it's true that the resolution is less than 1024x768, I'd consider this a valid issue for these reasons:
-In 1024x600 resolution the width is the same as 1024x768, so there should be no reason for the horizontal spacing to change.
-Even in 800x600 resolution, about 1/3rd of the menu bar is left empty.
-Setting scaling to 110%, then back to 100% fixes the issue until LibreOffice is closed.

In bug 101416 this was reported with 1366x768 resolution, so it seems to be affecting higher resolutions as well, under certain circumstances.
Note that the labels are also truncated:
By the way, look at this
I saw that not only meny and tooltips changed on notebook, but even the icons on toolbars. This is really strange.
(In reply to John Felton from comment #12)
Those are different themes (Tango and Galaxy), you can verify/change via Tools -> Options... -> LibreOffice -> View.

The bug reproduced in Virtualbox (640x480)

The comparison of default toolbar icons in desktop (1280x1024) and Virtualbox (640x480)
By the way, this bug can be reproduced in Virtualbox with 640x480 settings (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=126732).
And I saw that LibreOffice chooses the default icon style dependently from screen resolution (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=126733). Is this a bug or not?

Fixed menu after changing icon style

Flattened menu after restarting LibreOffice
I've found something. The menu fixes after changing icon style (it's not important, to Elementary or to Galaxy). It looks so (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=126734).
But after restarting LibreOffice the menu flattenes again :-( (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=126735).
It doesn't affects the tooltips, they're cut in both situations.
Thanks for the extensive checks, it's interesting to see that changing icon style also temporarily fixes the placement (in Comment 8 it was noted that changing scaling does this).
I didn't know automatic themes depended on resolution, it seems intended, but I don't know anything about it.
Note that resolutions below 1024x768 would not be supported normally, and while I made arguments in Comment 9 why this should definitely count as an issue to be fixed, it was good to see that the bug also occurred with 1366x768 resolution in your case.

The menu and tooltips on notebook (1024x600)
Thanks for the explanations, Aron.
My friend with 1024x600 notebook has the same problems (https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=126818).
They are really serious, but all we can do is to hope that developers have their attention of them, and it saddens.

If anyone who is seeing this problem wants to see it move forward, it'd be really useful to have a bibisect: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bibisect/

Main menu and tooltips on LibreOffice with GTK3 in Ubuntu 16.10 official repository
recently I knew that Ubuntu mainainers built LibreOffice with GTK3 for Ubuntu 16.10. It doesn't have these bugs with menu and tooltips
But there is only GTK2 in official LibreOffice PPA that has these bugs.
Does somebody know will LibreOffice go to GTK3 in next releases like 5.3?
As far as I know, there's no plan to switch TDF-supplied builds from GTK2 to GTK3.
