Since you noticed this, have you restarted your iMac (or logged out and logged back in)? I can't explain why, but resetting your processes often resolves such oddities.Various including Intel iMac, Power Mac G5, Pismo w/G4, Power Mac 8100 w/G3, Mac OS X (10.6), also Mac OS X 10.4.11, Mac OS X 10.3.9, and Mac OS 9.x

Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2009 5:29 PM (in response to JBinCalifornia)So this doubling is only on the menu icons along the right side of the menu bar? The left side of the menu bar is OK?
As a test, you can try creating a new admin user account in System Preferences Accounts pane
Log out and log in to the new account, where you are using default user preference files for Snow Leopard, and only running standard background processes (unless you installed third-party software that runs at the system level). See if this doubling still occurs.
If it does not, the cause is something in your existing pre- Snow Leopard user account. Usually, it is some preference file you need to trash, or (more likely in this case) some third-party software that is conflicting with Snow Leopard. Did you have anything installed that modified the menu bar?
You can check in System Preferences Accounts pane +Login Items+ tab for processes that startup automatically at log in. Remove any that you no longer need and look for anything that could be related to the menu bar.Various including Intel iMac, Power Mac G5, Pismo w/G4, Power Mac 8100 w/G3, Mac OS X (10.6), also Mac OS X 10.4.11, Mac OS X 10.3.9, and Mac OS 9.x

Delete this file.
Drag that file from the Preferences folder to the Trash, empty the Trash and restart your Mac.

What's new in this version:
[Mod] Snow Leopard (10.6) compatible which fixes issue with menus overlapping or disappearing.
