What is "GreyDay"? That's definitely not a theme that we ship by default, so better consult the theme-author. With respect to Greybird, could you please check which version you're using or from where you got it?

This is definitely not a known issue and I can't reproduce that here. In order to track this properly, I'd like to ask you to file a bug report against the shimmer-themes package – at least for the Greybird portion of the problem. (For GreyDay you'll have to contact the author of that theme.)


PS: Currently there is a menubar-problem in Greybird that I'm aware of, I hope we can get the fix uploaded soon.
