Yup, the following should probably be added to the Info.plist file in idea.app:
apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar true apple.awt.window.position.forceSafeCreation true apple.awt.window.position.forceSafeProgrammaticPositioning true apple.awt.window.position.forceSafeUserPositioning]]>
What do the forceSafe keys do? I think I missed those in docs...are they in the relnotes for the OSX JVM?

They are documented in the developer notes for 1.4.1 on the Mac:
They keep windows from being created or moved to a place off-screen where you can no longer access them. (This seems like a good idea, unless IDEA is using hidden windows for some reason.)
