Description

This is hrev36901.

When navigating the file system via drill-down menus - either right-click in Tracker or with a folder-menu in the Deskbar - the resulting chain of context-sub-menus should float over all other windows. At the moment it can be obscured by launched applications. For example, if you have to start a monster like BeZilla and use the 10 seconds until its window pops up to drill-navigate a bit to pass the time...

That's actually on purpose - before, you could not use a debugger when an application crashed with a menu open. I can't really think of a better solution besides making sure in the menu code itself that it stays on top (ie. this will then not work anymore once the app crashed).
