Menu bar is frozen in Gnome

Now and then our menu bar freezes up so that we can't get the drop down menus for Applications or Actions. The mouse clicks work on the right side of the menu bar and on icons on the desktop. The only solution we've found is to reboot the machines. We don't know what causes the freeze nor a less intrusive way of getting the menu bar to respond to our mice. We have 2 HP 64bit machines running Redhat Linux 4.2. Gnome is 2.80. Each machine was set up by a different company. Can you shed light on what causes it and/or give us a command that would fix it once it's broken.
