This was posted on the forums. Not sure if it helps or not but I figured it
would be good to add it.

I also found the menu problem, but found a workaround. It's caused by the
minimap. If you undock the minimap and move it away from the menu's, they
will stay open when clicked once.

(undock the minimap by clicking on the bar next to it)

Code-wise, my guess is that it's caused by the highly inefficient gtk
drawing code.

Cheers!
Dennis

Running the same Freeciv version on Vista Home Premium SP1 32bit, I cannot
reproduce this.

Have you tried other GTK apps on the same system? How about earlier
versions of Freeciv?

Best,
 ~Daniel

I am running other GTK apps (mainly Inkscape) and that one works fine. Pidgin (GAIM) also works ok. I tried downloading version 2.1.99 and it appears to be happening as well and on version 2.1.5 also. It starts off that you can see the outline of the menu then it actually draws the entire menu but a second or so later it disappears. 

I suspect it might be related to the 64bit version of Vista because I am unable to reproduce it on my 32bit Vista laptop. Is there some kind of dump our output that I can get and pass along to make it easier?
