Thank you very much for providing the workaround! This solves the
problem for my situation, because I can provide modified theme with
the distributive of our software.

Just a wild guess:
It would be interesting to create a custom theme with the following css options:
.window-frame:backdrop {
  box-shadow: 0 0 10px rgba(0,0,0,0.5)
  margin: 15;
...and test it in some other OS (Linux and Windows). Maybe the problem
of "insensitive menu" will appear there as well!
