Closed as it was reported to be a virtualisation issue.

On further testing, it appears that GNUstep is not the source of this bug. I now believe that it is related to my virtual environment. Under Gnome, all windows creep. Under WindowMaker, only GNUstep menus creep. Parallels introduced some new convenience features that allow the mouse pointer to pass in and out of the Linux virtual environment without any hot-keys; I have notice some other mouse-related misbehavior that is unrelated to GNUstep.

I am using the default NSNextStepInterfaceSytle vertical menus. I tried setting GSX11HandlesWindowDecor to YES and NO but the behavior was the same. Standalone GNUstep applications. Application windows are well-behaved. WindowMaker menus are well-behaved.

Could you please provide some more information. I am not able to reproduce this behaviour.

Which sort of menus are you using? Horizontal, wild menu or the standard ones?
What is your setting for the handling of window decoration?
Standalone GNUstep applications or a GNUstep desktop?

With gui-0.13 (trunk) a menu will creep across the screen when I click in its title bar. On mouse-down the menu moves down and right 1 pixel. Sub-menus do the same. It happens with art and cairo backends, also with WindowMaker and Gnome window managers. So far all apps do it.
