Turns out the interesting behaviour with the tool flaps red halo menu is
unrelated.  I can get this behaviour to occur with any flap if the flap
is close enough to the right edge of the world that the menu pops up
under the mouse cursor.

Similarly interesting, if I click the world low enough (say below the
level at which the tops of the flaps are drawn) then the world menu pops
up but won't stay up unless I hold the mouse button down.  This is also
true for the personal menu.
