Please consider these facts:
- when the user is working in a multi-monitor environment it is more annoying, see 
below. This is becoming more and more common today, and now OOo 1.9 can handle 
floating panels on another monitor than the main window which is helpful with so many 
- the problem also appears on the Slides panel, both on Draw and Impress.

Steps to reproduce
1 - Use a multi-monitor PC. Open Impress on the primary monitor.
2 - Make float the Slides panel and the Tasks panel and move them on the secondary 
3 - Right-click on a panel.

Anomaly : the context menu appears on the primary monitor or across both monitors, 
depending on the distance between main window and panel. It should appear next to the 
mouse cursor position, that is plainly visible on the secondary monitor.

There are two difficulties with this behaviour:
- the user may not see the context menu because he looks on another monitor, and 
conclude there is no menu for this panel
- the user needs to drag the mouse a long way to select a specific menu item

Problem reproduced on Win XP SP2, dual monitors, OOo 1.1.113
