Problematic Context/Popup menus

Hi all,

On some of our OpenSuse 10.3 workstations, we have the problem that the right-click context menu appears on the wrong
position - I've found the bug which is related to multiple screens and in the JDK itself.
However, on the same machines, the context menu doesn't appear on right-click (more accurately it appears and instantly
disappears again) - it only 'stays' when holding the right mouse button, and within the first one or two seconds, the
menu item which you mark and 'up' the right mouse button is activated, after that time, you need to 'normally' click the
item you want to choose.
This makes IDEA virtually impossible to use, so my question is whether this is a known bug and what can I do to work
around it - because, with the same JDK, context menus in other Swing-applications (e.g. SQuirreL, SmartSVN) work well,
its just IDEA (and because I've introduced IDEA here at my company, some users - the ones with above mentioned problems
- are quite unhappy...)

kind regards,

Messi

Hey (JetBrains) guys, I'd really like to have some feedback on this - or
should I file a JIRA? If, how can I help to reproduce (provided it's not
a known defect)?

kind regards,

Messi
