Dropdown/popups don't honor the screensize

Description

Popups from applications will not honor the screen size. Therefore if you have something popup that extends to the sides or extends down will not be accessible. The same issue happens if you have a dropdown it extends out to the side and out of the screen. I've attached a screenshot to show this.

This is not a winswitch bug since this is only present with xpra sessions (well, in fact it is not even a bug with xpra but an Xvfb limitation).

Note: the solution is now available, it will be merged in Xorg upstream and in the meantime you can find packages with the fixes included, see Xdummy standalone and packaging for details.
