The only thing I can think of as a work-around for now is to enclose all 
your content in a group with a scrollbar. Set the height of the group to 
the height of the stack panel, which would also have to be set to fit 
into the available space. You won't get automatic menu scrolling 
behavior but you'd at least have a scrollbar, sort of like a combo box.
