The menu is just too tall, which is a bug in Kirigami or the QQC2 style (not sure which one).

However, a menu with just one item is silly. Aleix, can we remove these hamburger menus and just add their items to the applicable header as buttons? We already do this for the PackageKit configuration button; might as well do it for everything IMHO since now we have silly one-item menus. I think that would be more user-friendly and nicer-looking.

This fixes the actual issue.
We can drop the hamburger, I'm not a big fan of the buttons there, tested it in the past and it looked odd, but maybe it's the way to go.

This patch fixes the issue Patrick is complaining about: https://phabricator.kde.org/D16685
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2018-11-05 14:17:41 UTC
We already have a button on the header row though: it's just an unlabeled button that opens a single-item menu. :) Last time I tried replacing this with buttons for the individual menu items, I thought it looked pretty good, but then again I am a notorious button-lover.

I'll give that patch a whirl, regardless.

Fix issue where there's only one element on the menu

This (random) height shows an odd padding on the menu when there's just the one

Test Plan: I don't get it anymore on Discover
