      Position of pull-down menus and submenus from main menu is under menubar where you first pull down the menu.
      eg. Pul down menu "Versioning" and for others menus for instance "File" they are always pull down under menu "Versioning"

      Repainting problem. If you invoke repeatedly popup menu eg. in Explorer it happens sometimes that it left a grey rectangle after menu dismiss painted in the window. It must be closed and opened again.

      submenus in popup menu:
      is the worst stuff on all menus. It strange how its behaviour varies from one component to other.
      *In normal Explorer: if your mouse hover over the submenu, sometimes popup menu disappears at all or sometimes display content of submenu as just it is a popup menu.
      *In Revision Explorer(you must have mounted one of the Versioning FS(CVS))
      CVS commands which are available as a submenu of popup menu are simply unrechable. Pupup menu is moved to the right and submenu is painted under it, and if you hover over it bouth menu disappeare.

      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1-b24, mixed mode)

      When pulldown menu is opened for a very small window, part of the contents of the menu is not visible, because it appears to end at the border of the window.

      You can verify this if you for instance run the Notepad application included in the demo/jfc/Notepad subdirectory. Decrease the height of the window until only the toolbar is visible. Now open the "Edit" menu. The menu is only partially visible.

      I added a note to bug 4470376, but #3 above, in this bug description, is the behavior that I'm seeing on Solaris. So it is not just Linux specific. I am using filesystem->new->any menu choice->any submenu. All of the last submenus loose focus and I can't create my EJBs (try new->beans->bean). Just wanted to note the behavior for Solaris in this bug rather than opening a new bug. I'm on Solaris 8, an ultra sparc, jdk1.4 (32 bit), 010817 FFJ EE build with or without the newest javac.jar file.

      In Forte for Java Enterprise Edition on Linux (2.2.16) on the popup menu for an EJB module, the part of the menu items containing the short-cut descriptions ("Ctrl-X", "Ctrl-C", and "Delete") are off the menu area. It comes back into the menu area if a mouse pointer is put over it. This problem was originally described in bug 4427912, but I closed that bug as a duplicate of this one. This problem doesn't happen on Windows.
