Thanks! This Worked.

Sounds good.

Now for something completely (well, not really) different,

Some feedback:

- I love Ctrl-click for looking up definitions and lemmas. Is there a 
way of jumping back to where I came from (I mean the exact position of 
the cursor)?
- I guess this is Java-specific but I mention it anyway: On my system 
(fedora 15 + Gnome 3) there is the "feature" of snapping windows to the 
right or left or top (such that they will occupy the right-half, the 
left-half, or the full screen). After doing that, however, the menu does 
no longer work properly when navigated by the mouse, i.e., it does open 
at a wrong position of the screen (strangely, everything works fine with 
keyboard shortcuts).
