	I do not remember this happening to me, but my desk is probably
*much* bigger than yours.  If the menus are opened and then would end up
off of the current desk/view, then yes, they are aligned with the bottom
of the screen (desk/view).  This is more than likely what is happening
here.  It's a feature - to save those "I can't see the menu - it's off my
screen!". :)
