Bug Description

When there is not enough space for the global menu to show all the menu items then the some are hidden. This is a particular problem on netbooks and applications that have a lot of options in the menu (such as gimp). See screenshot, all the options after "Color" are hidden and can not be accessed. I've tried that in a Mac (by setting the resolution to a very low value) and what it does is obfuscates the applets ... which I don't really like either. I believe that when the menu is shown (mouse over the global menu) the panel should take preference in the menu and hide the applets temporarily instead.
