I can confirm this under Ubuntu 14.04 when using Unity. However, with the xfce desktop or older Ubuntu versions it doesn't occur. So, I guess it's rather a bug in Unity than in FreeCAD.

For Windows 10 the problem does not exist for me.

Although it's not a bug in FreeCAD but very likely in Unity I have removed the &. Actually it was supposed to support mnemonics but since in sub-menus this doesn't work very well it's no loss in functionality.
