Sample code and two s/shots

Description of Problem:
Dynamic menu building cause wrong drop-down menu positioning under Mac OS X.
In fact, first time menu opens correct. From second time it is shown a little
bit lower than it should.
I guess, the Mac OS menu height is added one more while calculating absolute
Relative position (DropDownLocation) is right and not changing.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Use, for example, ToolStripDropDownButton in your project.

2. Add ToolStripDropDownButton.DropDownOpening handler.
      toolStripDropDownButton.DropDownOpening += new

Note: Add a dummy item into drop-down:
Otherwise DropDownOpening handler won't be called my Mono up to 2.0 at least
(reported as bug #438772).

3. Build a menu in the handler. For example:
    void toolStripDropDownButton_DropDownOpening(object sender, EventArgs e)
      toolStripDropDownButton.DropDownItems.Add("Dynamic Item 1");
      toolStripDropDownButton.DropDownItems.Add("Dynamic Item 2");

4. Compile and run under Mac OS X.

Actual Results:
Click drop-down first time - it is shown well.
Click again - it is shifted down.

Expected Results:
Should be shown in right place each time.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
This is about Mac OS only.
This is not reproduced with static (once built and not changing) menu.

Sample code and two screen shots are attached.
