It helps to run it NOT as the system GTK. That avoids the global menu. It
would be nice to be able to turn tear-off menus off though. I'm 90% sure
that fixes the issue, but it's a small issue and gnome-globalmenu is not
Gnome official (yet). If it's a simple addition please add that option;
otherwise I'd wouldn't spend much time on it.
