Package: boinc-manager
Version: 7.0.24+dfsg-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/boincmgr

Dear Maintainer,

there is some problem with drawing and padding of menubar in Boinc Manager,
making it essentially inaccessible. It is still possible to use using keyboard
shortcuts (Alt+O), but because UI doesn't show (underlines) accelerators,
it is hard to know what shortcut to use.

Problem can be workarounded by resizing window.

Please check movie I uploaded to Vimeo ( https://vimeo.com/40815505 ),
to see how it behaves in realtime.

I belive this is connected to the padding. boincmgr uses wxWidgets
(and wxWidgets uses GTK+ as underlining native UI), and as far as I know
wxWidgets and GTK+ have somehow different views how paddings and layouting
works (including how they are named).
