Sometimes the bottom of the Context Menu is hidden behind the OS taskbar.  It happens right at the point where, instead of the menu appearing above the mouse pointer, it continues to show it below.

1. New Text Document.
2. Maximize window.
3. Place the mouse more than half way down the screen on the document, but not too far down that the menu will appear above the mouse.
4. Right click.
5. If menu appears below mouse then move mouse slightly down on screen and repeat step 4.
Eventually the bottom of the context menu is behind the taskbar.

I was working today with LibreOffice 5 on Windows 7 and had exactly the same Issue.
My window was not maximized.

I may have an idea what's the problem:
I have two different screens, and the LibreOffice window was on the smaller screen.
As shown on the first Screenshot of Gordo, he also has two screens, and he also has open the LibreOffice Window on the smaller screen.

LibreOffice may use the the height of the whole Desktop instead of using the height of the current monitor where the menu is displayed?

Dear Gordo,

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.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
