supposed to be, ill have to fix it if its not like that).
File an RFE (Request for Enhancement) in Bugzilla
that way they developers will remember to consider if i they can spare

Abi has this already (natively i think, but maybe not in your version or

In Gnome/GTK you can tear away the menu let it float, so you dont have
to click through so many menus. It may not be particularly useful but
its not doing any harm either.
