Possible errors in buttons and context menus

While using display fusion for the past few days I have noticed some weird behavior with titlebar buttons and titlebar context menus.

For some windows in their titlebar context menus I get items like move/restore to monitor 1/2/etc. and for others I do not. Some times I briefly will see the context menu appear larger, like it was going to display these items, and then it will quickly change to the default windows context menu. This may have something to do with setting the windows taskbar to combine buttons, but I am not sure. Explorer windows always seem to display the move/restore items, and as of now Firefox does not.

As for titlebar buttons (ones added by display fusion), they seem to be drawn oddly. In the normal case if a window partially overlaps (by 1 or more pixels) the titlebar buttons of another window, then they will not be drawn at all and clicking where they would be does not produce any result, not even bringing that window into focus. In a special case, for some pop up windows for an application (such as the background color chooser dialog in the wallpaper window of display fusion) moving the titlebar of the popup window over the titlebar buttons of the parent window will cause the titlebar buttons of the parent window to be drawn over the titlebar of the popup window. The buttons will disappear if they overlap the popup window's content area or the popup windows titlebar buttons.

@ender4: I have fixed the titlebar button overlapping for version 3.1.3. As for the buttons disappearing when partially covered, that is by design for now, but I hope to find a better way to handle that in the future. For the context menu items, DisplayFusion doesn't do that, so I'm not sure where that's coming from. Thanks!
