Jaunty system bug: every menu bar disappeared


it's two days I'm trying to replace a big issue that never happen before:

every Gnome application I'm used to utilize, have just lost their menu-bar.

To let you better understand what I mind, I'm not talking about the Gnome-panel or the Gnome-menu applet over the gnome-panel, what I mind is the tipical tool-bar placed in the upper side of almost every applications, usually the one with the "File" - "Edit" - "View" and "Tools" menu items.

Enyone could help me in finding a way to unhide the tool-bar?

Thank you in advance.

The only way I could find to hide the Menu bar is to enter Full Screen mode. Try pressing the F11 key. If that doesn't work, you might want to make a bug report. Are you using the final release version?
