Bad menus after desktop geometry change

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I have a laptop running MacOS X 10.4.10. I start Apple's X11 program (based on
XFree86 4.4.0), followed by a local Emacs process (22.1.1). Everything works
great (thanks all!), including GUI menu popups from mouse clicks, until I
change my desktop geometry by plugging in an external display. When I move my
Emacs frame to a the larger desktop region hosted by the external display, I
*sometimes* get incorrect menu popups: they popup on the laptop display, where
the Emacs frame was, and not on the external display. The menus are still
usable (just barely). My only solution so far is to restart the Emacs process.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/local/share/emacs/22.1/etc/DEBUG for instructions.

In GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (powerpc-apple-darwin8.9.0, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
