In bug 1181078 we're making the awesomebar popup as wide as the window.  (Spec at [1].)  When the window is partially off-screen, the popup's position is offset so that it appears fully on-screen, and that breaks the illusion that it's part of the window.  We need a way to circumvent that behavior so that the popup always appears at the same position in the window.

This adds an allowoffscreen attribute to panels that skips the off-screen calculations.

Why not just use flip="none"?
That works, thanks.
