Dropdown menu in menu bar disappear when clicking on it


I have a wierd experince with my PHPStorm.
When I click on the menu bar the menu drop down shows up, but when I release the mouse button the menu dropdown disappear.

Example: I want to comment some code and want to use the option "Comment with Line Comment" which is in the "Code" dropdown menu.
So I click on "Code" and the dropdown menu shows up, but if I release the mousebutton the dropdown menu disappear again.
A really annoying effect.

My setup is follows:

PHPStorm 4.0.2
Java JDK (Oracle) 64-bit
I have not installed any plugins.

Does any have the same exerience and what could be wrong?

Hi Jesper,

1) I assume you are on Linux and using Gnome?
2) Do you have the same behaviour when PhpStorm window is not maximised (e.g. half size .. or just a bit smaller than full screen)?

If the above applies to you, then this one seems relevant: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-79442 (or maybe even http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-70226 )

Please try RC build of 4.0.3: http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/wi  (accordingly to the above tickets it should be fixed/resolved)

Sorry I forgot to tell that I have Linux Mint
Edition: 13 (Maya)

So your explanation and links are highly relevant for my topic and helps me alot!
Thanks :-)
