Yes, unity is not working right with our menus. It's a case of there
not being proper binary compatibility, something that comes up w/ Linux
from time to time since distributions tend to assume everyone is
compiling everything from sources for each dist.
As a work-around, I think you can log in using the "classic desktop"
instead to get the regular menus.
The following may also be useful, although I haven't tried it and it's
not something I'd recommend if you're not comfortable w/ restoring
things from a non-GUI or failsafe login session:
This may also suggest a more localized fix -- I wonder if doing "unset
UBUNTU_MENUPROXY" before launching Wing from the command line will fix it?
I can't try either of these at the moment so please let us know if they
