Well, I thought I had figured out a solution (it does indeed fix the original problem of not being able to select a menu item):  set the visible of the popup button to true, but place it behind some button or field...   but noooo....  under Windows, the popup button still manages to show up at times!

Still looking for a solution, can anyone suggest something?  I trimmed all but the most pertinent quote history below...
