This isn't something we can fix. X11/GDK provides GTK with screen geometry, and has led GTK to believe that the menu can be displayed in the way it is currently doing. The decision is not made by Ardour nor is it possible for Ardour to influence it.

This is unlikely to be fixed in GTK+2, which is in maintainance mode only, even if it has been fixed in GTK+3. We will remain with GTK+2 for the foreseeable future.

This does not happen with a more "conventional" dual screen setup.
