I can't think of any problems with it; Rev seems to want to center the
dialog on the defaultStack, so if the defaultStack is partially
offscreen, the answer/ask dialog is as well. I think what you're doing
(so long as it is visually acceptable) is a good workaround.

Once Bugzilla is back online, I'd suggest adding it as a feature request
(if it's not already there).
