Screenshot of mispositioned systray menu

I just upgraded to Tumbleweed 20180122 which includes the Plasma 5.12 beta and the systray menu positions are really really wrong. Please have a look at the attached screenshot.

I am using a display with a resolution of 3840x2160 here. Please let me know if you need any other information.

Are all menus affected? Can you try with a "regular" application (the volume is actually a widget) and see if that occurs as well?
Comment 2 Markus Zimmermann 2018-01-24 21:43:49 UTC
I cannot reproduce it today. Yesterday I did the following:
- logout/kill X-server/login again TWICE
- rebooted TWICE
and every time the problem was there. Today, it is not. 

So maybe this bug should already be closed and I will reopen it when I can reproduce the problem accurately?
Comment 3 Markus Zimmermann 2018-01-28 10:23:30 UTC
Looks like I can reproduce this sometimes. The key is to boot from scratch with both monitors (the built-in of the laptop and the external) and not reboot. Then the problem stays even with logouts of the KDE session until I press CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE.
Comment 4 Markus Zimmermann 2018-01-29 08:57:07 UTC
OK I think I can reproduce this most of the time when I boot with the external monitor. It sometimes happens that I cannot even reset the problem with CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE. At the moment I am stuck with menus that are about 1000pixels away where they should be.

Maybe this has something to do with the monitor scaling?

I am now on 20180704 and some versions ago it started to happen every time.
Comment 6 Markus Zimmermann 2018-07-12 14:33:07 UTC
Restarting plasma as described in #1100493 is a workaround for this problem.
Comment 7 Markus Zimmermann 2018-09-10 06:16:56 UTC
I am now on 20180905 this is still the case.
