I lost my property inspector

I got this when dropping an Option Menu on 7.0dp3 .   I took a picture of it.  This didn’t have the way-off-screen or wrong mode like I saw before.  Do you have a bug report I can upload the picture to?

The reason only a few people are see in it, is because if you get ANY OTHER PROPERTIES first, the problem does not exhibit itself. At least this is what my tests revealed. That is why you MUST follow the above formula to see it.
