When I click on a menu - say the Options menu, then cursor down to a sub-menu
- say "Line wrapping in this buffer" - then when the pointer reaches the
sub-item, its menu doesn't open.  I then have to move the mouse slightly, and
only then does the menu open.

I tried this on Ubuntu 14.04, with emacs 24.4 candidate and emacs trunk. They don't exhibit the problem you describe, sub menus are opened at once.

Further, tooltips in a menu sometimes don't
appear correctly at first.   They appear clipped and incomplete, but a further
mouse move makes them redraw correctly.

I can't reproduce this either. In the future, please refrain from reporting two problems in one bug report, make two separate bug reports instead.

Did you starte emacs with -Q? You do not seem to run vanilla Ubuntu, but rather have another theme/window manager. Please give the details of that (i.e. desktop environment, theme, window manager).

All other GTK apps work normally.

I have created a youtube video which illustrates the above :-

This affects version 24.3.1, installed in ubuntu 14.04, both on 32 and 64 bit
installations.  I also downloaded the source, also version 24.3.1, and
compiled that, with the same results.

A workaround is to configure with "--with-x-toolkit=athena".  This toolkit's
menus don't suffer from the same problems, and work fine.

In GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.10.7)
