Dropdown menu does not directly open dropdown of children

Hi, I have a dropmenu with menu items and respective sub-items .
Currently the dropdown behavior seems to be such that you need to first click a menuitem in order to see its subs opened. From there you can just hover the other menu items to see their children.

I assume this changed along with the v3.0 code.
An ordinary System.Windows.Controls.Menu object consisting of menuitems first needs to be clicked in order to actuate the automatic mouseover-dropdown behavior.
Since the Fluent dropdownbutton no longer inherits from MenuBase (breaking v3.0 change) ,
the mandatory Menu under it, holding the first-order menu items, must first be clicked, to incite the automatic dropdown of the children.

It's caused by that change. I will look if i can provide sample code to change that behavior.
