Summary: YaST2 Qt package manager opens RMB context menus at a
wrong position, usability issue
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.1
Version: Factory
Platform: i586
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: christoph@xxxxxxxxx

I am using yast2-qt-pkg-2.21.6-2.2.i586 and the following regression is visible
compared to the version from openSUSE 11.4:

When I am in a package list and I click right mouse button (RMB) to open
context menus, those menus do not open at the Qt default positition, but
horizontally and vertically shifted, so that the mouse pointer is _inside_ the
menu instead of at the edge.

Because Qt both handles RMB click as well as RMB drag to select menu items, it
now happens that when I click to open the menu, it immediately closes, because
my mouse pointer moves on each click slightly (I use a stylus). This is a
severe usability problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open YaST2 Qt package manager, and go into any package list
2. RMB click on a package item
Actual Results:
The menu opens horizontally and vertically inside the menu

Expected Results:
It should open at the edge, like any other Qt menus
