Context-menu is displayed incorrectly if called with keyboard button instead of rightbutton of mouse. It happens during range selection.
Steps to Reproduce:
I select range of cells in Calc with keyboard.
1.Select first cell
2.Press Ctrl-ArrowDown to select all cells in column till end of range.
3.Press context-menu button on keyboard (analog of right button on mouse).
Context menu appears near first cell but I can't see it as cursor is on last cell of range.
Context menu is displayed in hidden zone near first cell of selected range
Context menu is displayed in visible zone near last selected cell (where current cursor is positioned)

Ok. Steps should be:
1. Select cell rang with Ctrl+Shift+Arrow
2. Push special Context menu key on keyboard (near with right Ctrl)

I was able to somewhat recreate this bug.
First, you have to select whole column (Ctrl + Shift + Down Arrow). Then, you have to scroll down and then use the special context menu key (the one between right Alt and Ctrl on the keyboard).
Depending on how much you scrolled down, the context menu will appear overlaying the top toolbar or can even "escape" the window and overlay other things. If the window is in full screen, it results in context menu being displayed "outside" of the screen.
My suggestion is to change the way context menu is being displayed when it is triggered by keyboard. It should have a fixed position, for example the center of the screen or fixed to the left top corner of the active window. It would not be a problem, that it's blocking the toolbar as it's only temporary.
I attached a screenshot showing it "escaping" the window.
For any further info - please ask.

Dear Konstantin Tkachenko,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
