Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008052400 Camino/2.0a1pre (like Firefox/3.0pre)

Occasionally, the autocomplete list will appear disconnected from the location bar, hovering instead above the window (see screenshot).  Aside from the placement, everything seems to function normally.

It might be relevant that I am often switching monitor setups between my smaller laptop monitor and my larger external monitor.

I'm not sure whether "Couldn't reproduce" is the correct label; I have seen this on two separate occasions, but I don't know how to consistently reproduce it.
Do you have any idea what you were doing right before/during causing this?

I've occasionally seen wackiness on 10.5 with other child windows (e.g., sheets) when I time hitting Exposé right as they appear, so that I get a floating sheet in the middle of the otherwise empty screen.

I'd say it's very likely to be relevant ;)

Can you remember any specific circumstances that might have triggered this as far as switching monitor configurations goes?

Unfortunately, no, but I'll try to watch for this sort of thing whenever I switch from one display to the other.

Have you had any further luck reproducing this or narrowing down the circumstances that might be causing it?

Haven't seen it recently, and I'm not sure what sorts of things to try in an active attempt to reproduce it.

I saw this once a while back, but I also have no idea how I did it (possible Exposé). Let's confirm since we do know it's happening.

It may be perturbed by the SoC work, but I imagine the basic approach of attaching the window will remain the same.

I haven't seen this since we switched to MAAttachedWindow; has anyone else?
