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
