Summary 0001527: cascaded menus can be inaccessible
Description i'm sure this is already known,
but thought i'd fill it in anyhow.

cascading menus have two layout bugs currently:

1. they get clipped by the right-hand edge of the main tweak window.
   i think this is fairly well-known.

2. when they try to avoid getting clipped as above,
   by expanding to the left side of their parent menu rather than the right,
   a gap of about 60 pixels is introduced between the parent and child.
   
   this is a serious user-interaction problem because underneath that gap
   is usually more parent menu, which, when moused-over in an attempt to get
   to the new child menu, closes the child menu.

i will now use the word 'menu' three more times in this post.

menu, menu.

menu.

..looking more closely at the attached screenshot,
i would hazard a guess that the child menu is positioning its left edge
as if it were the same width as its parent.

The recent fix works only for the initial display of the submenu. When mousing over to a different submenu and back to the first, it's still off-screen.
