Description DaggyStyle 2011-07-24 16:29:07 UTC
when boincmgr connects to localhost, the menu line is replaced with one item named fil which allows only to close the window or exit boinc.

this happens in previous versions too.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2011-07-25 16:05:42 UTC
Do you get any error when running from a terminal and trying to reproduce the problem? Also post "emerge --info" output
Comment 2 DaggyStyle 2011-07-25 17:38:53 UTC
nope, no error.

Comment 3 Erik Zeek 2011-09-29 03:53:10 UTC
I get this too.  The menus are still there, they are just hidden.  Click on the "Fil" menu (Mine is just "F") and you can now use the arrow keys to access the other menus.  The accelerator keys work as well.
Comment 4 DaggyStyle 2012-04-27 17:38:02 UTC
although I use a 3rd party ebuild for boinc (7.0.25), if I resize the gui, I can see the menu fine after that.
