This bug exists in FFJ CE 010523 under Red Hat Linux 6.2 (Zoot)
with GNOME and jdk1.3.1-b24.
Very often when I click right mouse button on any node in
explorer popup menu appears in the upper left coner of the screen
(see screenshot in attachment).

Actually it happens when the entire popup menu can not be placed in explorer
window. So make explorer window as thin as possible and try to call popup menu

Try adding this

script with -J-Dnetbeans.popup.linuxhack=true command line arg.
I hope it is documented somewhere - if not that is really a documentation bug.
Please use: -J-Dnetbeans.popup.linuxhack=true
