I'm not sure I agree with this ... the bnehavior described sounds good for menus that pop up when you right-click the mouse (ie at your current location), but wrong for the permenant main mainu.

The main menu should be one that you can drag off the screen to hide ... so IMO none of this re-sizing behavior on with boundaries is appropriate for the main menu:. the only screen constraint ought to be that at least one pixel of the menu header should be left on screen so that you can find/move it back fully on screen again.

Only appears to affect menus in Gorm.app.

If a menu is moved to far up the screen, it's header can become clipped, rendering it immovable.

If a menu is to long it is clipped by the bottom of the screen and items become un clickable.

Instead it should be clamped between the top of the screen and the bottom of the screen, or the bottom of wild menus and the top of the dock\tab drawer.

If the number of menu items would cause a menu to surpass the bottom of the screnn, the rect should first be bumped up, then menu items should wrap left to right(although, no one should, make a menu that long).

Similarily, if a menu would supass the right side of the screen, it's rect should be bumped left, sub-menus should open to the left instead of to the right when not enough room is available.
