It's not clear from the screenshot what the problem is. Can you include a more complete screenshot? What dektop environment is this?
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2011-08-29 16:48:21 UTC
The screen-shot is not perfect but it happens with any linux distro which has bottom task bar. IIRC this was ubuntu 11.04 with classic theme
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-11-15 12:31:20 UTC
I don't have a linux machine. Could you please describe the problem and provide a better screenshot?
Comment 4 Marek Safar 2011-11-15 13:50:22 UTC
The problem is visible on the screenshot. The hover window height is larger than visible screen height.
Comment 5 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-11-17 11:40:21 UTC
The problem is that the debugger tooltip's size and position calculation uses the full monitor geometry, not the "usable" geometry (i.e. considering the Gnome docks). This isn't a problem for context menus because they show above the dock, but the debugger tooltip is hidden beneath the dock.
