If in HiDPI mode on Linux [1] the popup menus are constrained to the
upper left quadrant of the screen and are not opened near the mouse
cursor. For example, 'C-mouse-1' in the lower-right hand quadrant opens
an empty menu. 'C-mouse-1' in the upper-right hand quadrant opens a
menu, but not in the correct location.

[1] This mode is set automatically under Gnome, or may get set manually

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2

A workaround, which may help to diagnose the bug, is to start emacs

GDK_SCALE=0.5 emacs

This is a huge undertaking, that requires changes in Emacs all over the place. Coordinates and sizes are used in many places. I'm not sure its worth it, as this Gnome thing is a bad way to scale applications (it requires applications to conform to Gtk+). KDE does something different for example. So I'm guessing something better will emerge.

Other Gtk3 applications (gnome-terminal, nautilus) so not seem to
exhibit this behavior under the same conditions.

Emacs is not a Gtk3 application, ut just uses some of its widgets.
Its more of a raw X11/Gtk3 hybrid.
