So, trying to get up to speed with LaTex in vim/gvim... problem is the beginners tutorial for vim-latexsuite assumes gvim and the gui menus. Okay, got gvim right here. Problem is, under Unity and the global app menu, the menus are truncated and don't show the keyboard shortcuts that they should for most entries, or in the case of the TeX-Suite menus, entries like '2: Article' are simply truncated to '2: '. Not helpful at all!

I know the menus themselves work - starting gvim using 'sudo gvim', which does not use the global app menu but the local menus, looks just fine - like gvim on any other platform or desktop, i.e. like it should.

How do I force that behaviour under unity for a regular user (i.e. not using sudo)?
