#43996 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Privacy admin pointer misaligned when 3rd party menu items exist

Description

An admin pointer was added in r43158 for the new Privacy and Personal Data tools. On a fresh install, the pointer is correctly aligned between the Tools and Settings menus. If plugins add additional menus, though, it can become misaligned.

#43961 is closely related. The fix suggested in https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/43961#comment:6 will also fix this issue. Not going to close just yet, but a patch for this will most likely not be needed so marking close.

I'm still able to reproduce the problem after r43210. I needed to add about 10 menus, and resize the viewport to the point where the menu would scroll a bit (e.g., 1366x768). Another factor is where you're scrolled when you refresh the page (top or bottom).

If there isn't enough time to fix this for 4.9.6, though, then it's probably a moot point, since I'm guessing the pointer will be removed in 4.9.7 anyway.

This will probably be a rare occurrence, and I agree with @iandunn that this will most likely be a short lived thing. Marking as close, and if no one is able to propose a solution before the RC this afternoon, we can close as a wontfix.
