This is generally fixed, but there appears to be backend-specific bugs which should be tracked separately.

I think this was fixed. I can scroll very long popupbuttons.
Do you confirm?

Currently I'm seeing at least two semi-related problems with popup lists:

First, when the list is popped up it is displayed with the currently selected item positioned one place too high, rather than directly over the button.

Second, when the lower part of the list is too long to fit without extending off the bottom of the screen, the list is positioned even higher on the screen, and the mouse tracking selects items far above the mouse.

If an NSPopupButton has more items than can be displayed on the screen at once, you can't scroll through the list properly to select an item.

To easily see the behaviour, create a new application in Gorm and add a large number of menu items to an NSPopupButton. Then test the interface.
