KDE and Unity menu bar work-a-round

Some user reported a strange bug with KDE and Unity desktop environments. The top menu bar in Voptop seems not to appear in this two desktop environments. It's not a big surprise when it comes to Unity, because of there well known menu bar behavior similar to the Mac OS X menu bar behavior.

Anyway, I was able to reproduce the bug and fixed it with programming "my own menu bar". Now it should work the same way for all desktop environments.

The bug fix will be included in the next beta release (1.2.0).
