Capturing Screenshots in GNOME on Solaris

Ever tried capturing a screen shot of a menu in an UI application on GNOME? Notice how the menu gets de-selected (or loses focus & disappears) as soon as you hit the print-screen button. The way to get around this is to use the gnome-panel-screenshot command at the console with the --delay= option. This switch makes the screen capture occur automatically after the specified delay, by which time you can "prepare" your application UI for the screen shot.
