  GDebi loses globalmenu integration directly after password prompt.

Status in “gdebi” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I installed the Phoronix Test Suite via the GDebi pacakg installer,
  but after it got my password, the toolbar went to the down to the
  window, rather than the top panel as most apps do (and they fade in
  when hovered over and the close min max buttons are there).

  I beleive that the 'problem' is caused by GDebi relaunching itself via gksu or gksudo, as opening gui apps with this command loses globalmenu integration (Only temporary - fixes on relaunch.). 
  Reconstruction after password prompt:
  (recreated using gksudo but outcome is identical)
  Screenshot before password prompt:

  I beleive system specs are irrelevant.
