Using Lightroom 4.2 on Win7, working in fullscreen mode with hidden menu bar to get maximal working space. When switching to another application and back, menu bar gets visible and I have to hide it again. Fixing this would be very nice :)

Happens to me all the time too. Minor annoyance that would be great if it was fixed.

Worse yet:
When working in fullscreen, I often can't Alt-Tab to another application. Apparently, Lightroom insists on keeping focus.

Does the Windows taskbar also get visible along with the menu bar?

Only the LR menubar gets visible. The problem can be reproduced easily by pressing [flag]+D to show Windows desktop and [flag]+D again to switch back to the LR.
