Well thanks for yet another attempt at a solution. Yet the fact remains that
this popup menu acts in highly non-standard ways. On X11 the title bar *is*
present. When you click somewhere off the popup it does *not* dissapear as
it should. And when the window is near the screen border the popup will
appear at a random location (sometimes on the opposite side of the screen).
It is simply not something I'd use in a professional application.
The same widget coded in C++/Qt only takes about twice the amount of code as
REBOL. The neat thing is, it actually works properly (and on all platforms).
