Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (Yesterday)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Solved Kunena menu comes and goes. Repeatable

Let me preface this by saying that I have searched the forum(s) and I have reviewed the Kunena menu troubleshooting documentation, and have used the suggested methods for resolving Kunena menu related issues.

This is a new Kunena install on a recent Joomla 3.6.5 build.
Other environmental info:
PHP Built On - Linux info 3.0 #1337 SMP Tue Jan 01 00:00:00 CEST 2000 all GNU/Linux
Database Version - 5.5.54-0+deb7u2-log
PHP Version - 7.0.15
Web Server - Apache
Joomla! Version - Joomla! 3.6.5 Stable
Joomla! Platform Version - Joomla Platform 13.1.0 Stable

I have purchased and installed the Powered By Remover.

The forum on my site is only viewable to registered users. Main menu item pointing to Kunena forum is only viewable to registered users.
The Kunena menu appears to be viewable only under certain conditions and disappears under other conditions. The conditions are 100% repeatable.

I tried rebuilding the menu. I tried wiping it out and restoring it. I haven't made any changed to the CSS for the menu. The permissions on the Kunena menu are the "out-of-the-box" settings.

By shear accident I found that I am only able to get the menu links to display by clicking on the dropdown at the far right of the menu (where my avatar shows really small), then clicking on "preferences". As long as I stay within the forum context, the menu seems to remain. However, If I go outside of the forum to any other part of the website and then return to the forum, the Kunena menu items have all disappeared. The outer box border remains, but the button / links are completely gone, until I go back into the little profile dropdown menu, click on preferences and get it to come back.

I have inspected the CSS to see if there is anything changing anything that might effect the display of those items, but I don't see anything.

Please help with resolving this issue. The forum is essentially complete. However, with this issue I can't make it available to our members.

Attached are some screen captures.

Links of other menus, which are linked to the forum, must be Menu Item Type = Menu Item Alias (see the image) .
There is a wrong menu item in your main menu.
