Bug Description

Lubuntu 19.04 daily ISO image QA-test

My displays are vertically positioned (one above the other). I adjusted monitor-settings to reflect this, then added a second panel on other display.

Whenever I click the menu-icon on 2nd panel, i get pixels flash & show at top of screen, but no menu appears. If i click again on menu-icon the pixels (bottom of menu??) disappear.

I used monitor-settings to reverse displays (ie. as if my bottom monitor was on top, and my top monitor was now at bottom), and again the second display/monitor menu-icon would not work, with pixels now appearing at top of my upper-most-display (ie. same result just on different monitor, on newly created panel, the pre-created menu-icon & panel worked correctly.

This is LOW-importance, as the primary panel menu-icon works as expected. I could NOT trip it except by adding second panel (ie. primary/default panel was flawless in my testing)

This is also very similar to two other reports I've made; in fact when I ran ubuntu-bug, firefox opened with its window part on one display, part on the other with the middle strip being hidden below the lxqt-panel (which had been reported before (#1804337) - so this may relate.

part of my QA-test report follows
hp 8200 elite sff (i5-2400, 8gb, nvidia quadro 600)
adjust displays to match my setup (vertical setup anyway), add additional panel @ bottom of lower display
clicking the menu-icon on 2nd (lower) display on newly created panel did not have menu displayed on screen. it looked like it drew at top of screen, as I saw pixels top left of screen whenever menu should have appeared (click menu off using menu-icon and pixels would disappear). i altered screen so my bottom display was position at top (ie. reversed position) & menu-icon on top monitor would not display (but pixels at it's top showed when I expected menu). i've reported two bugs rather similiar, but not menu related..
