Menu bar glitches


Crotchety UI Nitpicker
In Tiger, I get some very strange menu bar behavior. Sometimes the text from two applications' menu bars will overlap (see attached picture). And often, when I quit an application, its menu bar will jump to another application (selecting a menu from the bar brings it back to normal in that case).

Does this happen to anyone else? Might it be because of my various third-party menu extras? Just wondering. Seems so bizarre. It never happened in Panther (I didn't really notice it before the 10.4.1 update, actually).

That's the first thing I would suspect: 3rd party menu items, and haxies. Disable all of them and see if the problem persists.
