This is reproducible with a simple snippet (here attached), and it's not
strictly related to gDebi. Reassigning to the relevant package.

** Package changed: gdebi (Ubuntu) => appmenu-gtk (Ubuntu)

** Changed in: appmenu-gtk (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Low => Medium

** Changed in: appmenu-gtk (Ubuntu)
       Status: Triaged => Confirmed

** Summary changed:

- GDebi loses globalmenu integration directly after password prompt.
+ Loses globalmenu integration directly after gksu fork

** Description changed:

- 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.
