Description Ruslan Kabatsayev 2012-04-28 11:58:24 UTC
How to reproduce:
0. Start Writer
1. Paste two images, so that one is on the top of the sheet, and another one on the bottom
2. Scroll the sheet so that upper image is half-clipped by the GUI, and lower is fully visible
3. Right-click lower image, then press ESC to close the menu
4. Now right-click upper image
5. See the sheet jumpy-scroll, and the just-appeared menu disappear
6. You now have to right click this image again to reopen the menu

At the same time, you can try another sequence after having done 0-2:
3. Put the cursor in space between images
4. Right-click upper (clipped) image
5. See menu appear and no unnecessary scrolling - OK

There have been some other situations where right-clicking an object makes the sheet scroll and menu disappear, which is quite displeasing.
