Does the same thing happen with a more "traditional" font? It seems to me like it's the font that causes this

Perfect, thanks it worked! – Ryner May 22 '11 at 2:41
by the way, all three top sites from a google search for "free fonts" are excellent ones . If i were you i would look for a better made font that would look like the one i had - thus getting both the working menus and the font you like. I used to have rather strange fonts (eg : my own handwriting) for quite some time without any problem on libreoffice's menus – Chriskin May 22 '11 at 2:43
