User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: version 1.0.7 (20050923)

Summary:  The Copy/Paste Dialogue Window pop-up is off-screen when a paste operation is attempted in a blank window within a Filter Rule entry when that rule has numerous (50+) entries.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place some text (an email address) in the windows copy buffer.

2. Navigate this window heirarchy to get to the precise problem:

Message Filters -> Filter Rules -> Select a pre-existing rule that has many entries (50+ entries) -> Select Incoming Msgs that Match Any -> Select "More" -> Select "Sender" -> Place mouse pointer in new blank sender entry window -> Right Click to bring up Copy / Paste Dialogue Pop-Up Window -> if the rule you selected has numerous entries, the copy/paste dialogue window location is off screen.  The more entries in the rule, the lower the popup appears in the desktop window, until eventually, it goes off-screen.  

Replication:  You can verify for yourself how the copy / paste dialogue location pops up incrementally lower on the desktop screen with each additional entry in the Filter Rule.  Yes, I am stating that the pop-up location is directly related to the number of rules in the filter.  The greater the number of rules, the lower the popup is placed on the desktop screen, until eventually it goes off-screen.  My screen resolution is 1152x864.  If your resolution is greater, I suspect it will take more filter entries to actually push the pop-up off the desktop screen.  In any case, the pop up location should not be tied to the number of rules in the filter, but by some different algorithm that ensures the popup is always visable in on the desktop.
Actual Results:  
Copy/Paste Pop up window is not visible on the desktop screen.

Expected Results:  
Copy/Paste Pop up window should be visable somewhere near the right-click location, in any case, somewhere on the desktop.
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is 2.0.0.16)
