Bug Description:
Popup menus do not work when window is on secondary monitor


Steps to Reproduce (be specific):
We can reproduce this with our swing app.  However, this is not necessary since it seems to happen in other apps as well.
> Open a terminal
> javaws -viewer
> Drag the java cache viewer window to secondary monitor
> Pick on the combo box (by the "Show" label)
> No popup appears.
> Drag to primary monitor, everything works fine
> Drag back to secondary, popup will not show again.

Apparently, using the arrow keys does allow selection, but at no time does the popup appear.
