Yep, everything appears exactly as you described. Maybe we can stick

the menu if we switch away from the details window, using window signals
or something. This could be risky because if we had some unexpected
 false positive or bug, the menu might not unhide. 
 
Also, this behavior reveals a small bug: we should probably kick off the
menu hide timer when mouse leaves the menu, not when it enters the VNC
widget. Otherwise if you switch workspaces while the mouse is over the
 menu, it won't hide without switching back to virt-manager.

The problem is that a drop down menu spawns a new window, so you will get a "leave" event on the menubar when the user opens a menu. This is why I did not connect the menu hide timer there. It also complicates your proposition of hiding the entire window using similar signals. Unless there is a good and reliable way to find out if the user is interacting with a drop down menu...
In any case, I don't expect to have time to look at this for the next couple of weeks. Just so you know.

Btw: have you given any thought to when you want to get virt-manager 0.9 out? Or what you want done before then.
