Menu Droppings?

I’m not sure the cause, but ever since I installed Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 I get some menu droppings… A menu option that shows up, but then stays on top of everything. Here’s an example:

I signed out of Live Messenger on another machine of mine and that menu got “Stuck”.

WORKAROUND: So here’s my workaround for the moment. I lock the computer, then login again. Then they seem to go away. Annoying, but hopefully it will be fixed in Beta 2.

Update 1 – 26 May 2009 – 1pm

I ran for 4 hours this morning without issue. I did reboot first thing this morning. However, after I started up Visual Studio 2010 I ran into the issue. Indications that I’m going to have an issue is that menu items will appear faintly until the cursor is completely over the sub-menu. If the menu comes up quickly then I’m in good shape.

Update 2 – 26 May 2009 – 2pm

I see there is a bug report on Microsoft Connect : https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=455355

Hopefully fixed in Beta 2…
