This is either bug 50163 or 72796; it's possible that those are actually
duplicates of each other, and 50163 should probably either be closed
(the menus now comply with Fitt's law, but the rest of the panel does
not) or re-assigned to the gnome-panel product and marked GNOME2. I'll
leave all of that to someone on this list to decide/deal with for the
time being; please let me know if there is a problem or question.
