I often fail to get "Spell Checking Buffer" item from the 
"Spell Checking" submenu:

emacs -q &

Click left mouse on "Tools" menu

Bring mouse down to "Spell Checking" submenu.  

I see the item "Spell Checking Buffer" on a pop-up something on the
left.  I try to select this item by taking the straight line path.  

The sub-menu quite often disappears, and sometimes the "Options" menu
replaces it.

My sysadmin figured out a work-around:  instead of taking the
straight-line path, go instead all the way left, and then up.

That means tracing a mouse-line all the way to the "Help" item, and
then travelling straight up to "Spell Checking Buffer".

That works pretty well, but sometimes I have to stay on the far left
fringe of the menu.
