Submenu selection switches in the middle

Currently using mmenu version 3.3.18

Hello,
Has anyone else noticed that when selecting a submenu item in IE5.5 that the highlight switches to the next (or previous) submenu item when the MIDDLE of the current submenu item is crossed? In IE5.0 all is well because the highlight moves to the previous submenu item when the TOP border of the current item is crossed. Proper results in IE5.0 also when moving to the next submenu item... the highlight moves when the BOTTOM border of the current item is crossed. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, I've noticed this as well.

See the new post 4 messages later in the list. Version 3.3.19 displays similar behavior.

My bad... Now the post of interest is right below this one in the list. I didn't know that a reply would move a message to the top of the list. :)

To the author who goes by the name "A" who responded to my original post.

I figured out the problem. It's the drop-shadow effect. The tip of the index finger will be in error by the same strength as your shadow effect. Set your shadow strength to 30 and then have a look. It's really bad. For now, I am not using drop-shadows to "solve" the problem.

This is a different problem than the multiple effects problem known in IE5.5. This problem happens when shadowing is used by itself.
