Also, this behavior reveals a small bug: we should probably kick off the

The problem is that a drop down menu spawns a new window, so you will get a
"leave" event on the menubar when the user opens a menu. This is why I did
not connect the menu hide timer there. It also complicates your proposition
of hiding the entire window using similar signals. Unless there is a good
and reliable way to find out if the user is interacting with a drop down
In any case, I don't expect to have time to look at this for the next couple
of weeks. Just so you know.

Btw: have you given any thought to when you want to get virt-manager 0.9
out? Or what you want done before then.
