Forgot to note: I'm using GNUstep SVN from 16/5/2009 for everything.

I'm experiencing these issues with xfwm4 and SystemPreferences when I set NSInterfaceStyleDefault=NSWindows95InterfaceStyle:

1. Switch the focus from the SystemPreferences application to another (non-GNUstep) application.

The menu bar in the GNUstep application disappears. If I switch back, it re-appears.

2. Click on one of the menus to open it (e.g. "Edit"). Click on the same part of the horizontal menu bar again.

The menu doesn't close, it seems to get hidden behind the main window, and the menu bar is still highlighted.

I have to click on  it another two times (why?) before it disappears. In the meantime, the rest of the application responds to my clicks.

3.  Select Info->Hide, and the application hides.

Double-click on the App icon, and the main window is restored, but the drop-down part of the menu appears up in the top-left of the screen, and the application main window is missing its horizontal menu bar.

4. Click and hold mouse down on Info drop-down, move it down over a sub-menu (such as Services), and then move the mouse out of the window and then release over the top of another application.

The menu remains open, and I have to click the menu-bar twice to clean it up.

When you use a GNUstep application in a GNOME environment, it adjusts submenus down when they're opened.   The mouse doesn't track correctly in the menu until you move the main part of the menu below the top menu bar on GNOME.
