RibbonWindow ApplicationMenu Strange Behavior

I'm upgrading from Essential Too v1.2 to v3.( 6.303.0.30)
I encounter some strange behavior.

First, I've created a new WPF Application Project in Visual Studio and added the Syncfusion references and change my window to ribbon window.
I then add in some Application MenuItem to the ApplicationMenu but when I run the application I couldn't see my ApplicationMenu Button. However, If I add an ApplicationMenuImage, I can see the icon (without the circle) and when I click on it, I can see a half styled ApplicationMenu, with gray half transparent background.

After a fair bit of investigation, it seems to me that there are issues when the Window size is <= 300. (Which by default WPF project is Width=300 and height=300 when creating from scratch)

To replicate the issue, open up the RibbonWindow Sample, change the window size from 800x600 to 300x300.
Launch the Sample App.
You shouldn't be able to see the Application Menu properly.
Resize the Window to >300, you will now see the SyncFusion icon but not the circle behind.
MouseOver the Logo, you then see the highlighed circle button.
Click on the ApplicationMenuButton, you will see a half styled ApplicationMenu.

I discovered this when I'm trying to debug my app following the upgrade to v3, so I went back to the RibbonWindow Sample app and do a process of elimination in identifying what the culprit is.

However, the problem is still not resolved in my real app. I've set the Width and Height to 1024x768, but I still get the same problem.
Window MinHeight and MinWidth are also not working.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Fred,

We had a clean investigation regarding your problem and still we are not able to reproduce your problem both in windows XP as well as in a Vista machine environment.
Could you please update us your sample so that we try to reproduce the issue and do the needful.

Here's my project, it's the RibbonWindow sample project from the v3 installation.

All I changed was the width & height to 300.

I've included 2 screenshots as well.
