      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      When opening a context menu in a Swing-based application and hitting accidentally a scroll wheel the context menu disappears.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      This behavior is getting quite uncomfortable when using Apple Magic Mouse which has a touch-sensitive surface instead of hardware-based scroll wheel.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The scrolling should happen only when the menu is too large to fit the screen as OS X native menus do.
      ACTUAL -
      Hitting the scroll wheel by accident closes whole structure of context menus to disappear and the user has to invoke the menu again.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Avoid to touch the scroll wheel or touch-based surface on a mouse or touchpad.
