original summary: "Another way to freeze titles"

Szenario: User wants to freeze (fixate) the first three rows. User therefore
selects the first three rows using the row caption on the left-hand side of the
table. Then the user selects Window|Freeze

expected results: the top three rows should be freezed

actual results:   only the top two rows are freezed (if the user did select the
rows starting with row 1 - if user started the selection with row 3, no row is

reason for this is that the freeze happens above the highlighted cell.

The behavior should be changed so that if a complete row is selected, that row
is included, no matter what cell is currently highlighted.
The same applies to columns.

Additionally, the functionality should be accessible using the context-menu on a
row/column header.

Especially an entry in the context menu, when a complete row is selected, would
be a lot more intuitive compared to the current entry in the "window"-menu.
