Btw. I think this little trick is a rather nasty "feature" of GNUstep: 
What besides the purpose to position a menu willingly off-screen is this 
intended for? I see only problems arise from this: What if an user 
positions the menu of an app accidentally off-screen (for instance by 
reducing the screen resolution)? Off course this can be fixed by fixing 
the defaults entry, but I think this is _not_ userfriendly (since this 
solution doesn't occur to the "victim" naturally). I think menus that got 
possitioned off-screen should return to an on-screen location the next 
time the .app is launched.
