The objects in a SELECT drop-down list should be aligned to the right when it is

They do not do that in Camino.
Oppss.. forgot the build number: 2004102908 (v0.8+)

I am attaching a test case and screen shots.
Attached file simple test case
Notice how the contents of the drop down list are aligned to the left (and the
edge of the list falls of the right part of the page)
Attached image testcase in firefox
same testcase in firefox- notice how the contents of the drop-down list
correctly align to the right, and the list does not fall of the right edge of
the page.

This is with Firefox 1PR (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O;
rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10.1)
do other osx menus do this? we're just using a native menu.
They are only half-broken in OSX itself- ALthough the OS doesn't really support
a RTL UI, at least when menus are RTL they do not "fall off" the right of the
parent like camino does (see screen shot of the "falling off" above).
