I'm seeing this too in the release build of 1097 using FC4. Most of the
time clicking the dropdown button flashes the menu up and it disappears
immediately. But it's inconsistent - it sometimes works as it should,
very occasionally. Can't see the difference between the clicks that work
and those that don't! Other dropdowns are ok.
