If enough channel tabs are open for them to reach the right edge of the screen,
when you right click on a tab to far over to the right, it automatically selects
the first option in the menu, which happens to be "Switch Text Direction".  Even
if a lot of tabs are open, the ones towards the left open the menu fine but the
ones on the right part of the screen cause this problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open enough tabs to at least fill most of the right part of the screen (i.e. I
had 17 tabs open).
2.Right click on a tab towards the right (i.e. The last tab).

Actual Results:  
The Text direction of that tab (even if it isn't the current tab) is switched as
soon as you right click.
This doesn't happen if you right click on tabs to the left.

Expected Results:  
The expected result was what the actual result was

A workaround is to hold down the right mouse button and move up to highlight the
desired option and then release the button.

On Linux, context menus are shown on mousedown, and can be triggered on mouseup.
 So is the problem that the context menu is coming up under the mouse pointer?

That said, this worksforme with a current trunk build....

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
