Not sure what this menu is, but it blocks what I can see in the interpreter.

This is GNU Emacs 23.3.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.10, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars) of 2011-05-24 on sdev10. I'm accessing it through a university server (SSH). It's there as soon as I startup Emacs.

I've personally never seen that; you might want to give a bit more details as to how to reproduce. (steps from startup, .emacs additions...) –  JB. Sep 9 '12 at 9:25

I didn't realize it was a menu .. here is a screen shot (with the mouse depressed) showing some of the other options this pop-up has.. I'm off to IT to see if they can find the answer. Maybe a difference between displayed to and displayed from machines. (mine are both variants of Suse ) I believe this issue is LOCALE based, as another attempt to recreate my issue on my system gave me a bunch of perl errors related to the locale, and it defaulted to the standard locale ("C").

couldn't set locale correctly
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
