Thanks for testing.  I committed the change.

That's how non-toolkit menus always worked: the menu is popped on the
same place where you click the mouse.  Personally, I rather like this,
but that's because I'm used to it.

If someone wants to work on changing that for clicks on the menu bar
(note that this should still work as it does for clicks on the text
area or elsewhere on the frame), I won't object, but I won't work on
this myself, sorry.

The same.  It also works the same on X when no toolkits are used, and
even on MS-DOS.

It is, as long as Emacs itself is creating the menus.  Toolkits don't
behave like that.
