Tray menu on wrong monitor

Description

The tray menu opens on the wrong monitor.

If the Windows taskbar is set to the left side, and the secundary expanding monitor is set on the left side. The right-click tray menu opens on the second monitor, the one without system tray. Refer to the image attached.

I've drawn a thick black line where the monitors split.

Interesting.... I can reproduce this on my setup - it seems to be a general issue with .NET applications.
I'll do some more research, but we might have to workaround this by explicitely setting the position of the menu ourselves...

Thanks for reporting, best regards,
Jens

This is a problem that I already have addressed a long time ago, seems to popup every now and than.. The problem used to show also when the bar is at the bottom (which is default) and the text is longer. Maybe we really need to look for a different solution as a context menu...

I'm the initial reporter of this bug.
Currently I'm using 1.2.4 Build 10 (64 bit) Windows 7 Prof.

And I was wondering if this behavior is going to get corrected?
