fails on linux ubuntu 8.04 GNOME desktop 2.22.1 with compiz extension 
turned off (System->Parameters->Appearance Preferences; open "Visual 
Effects" tab  and select "None").

Test creates JPopupMenu sets location to (1,1) then verifies that 
JPopupMenus's location on screen is (1,1). Ubuntu desktop has a gnome panel
on the top of screen, and popup appears under the panel (by y axis), so popups's 
location on screen is (1,25). 

With sun jdk 6, popup menu always appears in point (1,1) above 
gnome panel (z-order), with first menu item selected.

With open jdk 6 popup menu first menu item is never selected, with compiz
extension it appears below gnome panel by z axis, and with no compiz 
extension under the panel by y axis.

EVALUATION This should be reproducible on JDK 7 as well, I guess that to fix it we should set the popup type for our heavyweight popup windows as it decribed in 6899706

EVALUATION This bug is a duplicate of 6707909. After a fix for 6708392 there will be a new API, which will allow to fix 6707909. So, after a fix for 6707909, this bug will disappear.
