      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      It is impossible to use JPopupMenus that overlap the taskbar with the current tray icon API. We should add the necessary APIs to Mustang as soon as possible to make this possible.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      Consistency between the main application and the tray icon popup menu.

      Often, programs with a non-default L&F for their JFrame will also use the default L&F for their popup menu. Many native applications do this too (i.e. emule plus).


      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      As far as I understand it, there is no workaround. Without an API change, it becomes impossible to use JPopupMenus with the tray api that overlap the taskbar.
