On your top level navigation items, you are using JavaScript to toggle the menus visibility with onMouseOver and onMouseOut.

There is a 1 or 2px gap between your top level navigation and the sub menu navigation, so if you move your mouse slowly, the onMouseOut will fire when it hits this gap (because it's moused out of the top nav, which in turn will close the sub-menu. If you move your Mouse quickly, you probably won't notice it because the event doesn't have time to fire.

The gap can be closed a couple of ways

1. You could add a 2px bottom padding to your LIs - effectivley making them 2px deeper
2. You could move you sub-menus up by 2px so that it meets the Top Nav

You could use both - add a 1px padding-bottom to the top nav and take 1px off the top position of the sub nav
Method 1 - menu.css - Line 36(ish)
     padding: { 0 20px 2px }

Method 2 - menu.css - Line 53(ish)
     top: 20px
