Koen,

That's a good reason :)  You might find it helpful to change some of the
menu scroll settings.  It seems to me that under (left mouse menu) |
configuration | configuration panel | Menu settings, advanced, the
setting 'Autoscroll Margin' determines how far from the screen edge the
menu will be scrolled, and the 'Autoscroll Cursor Margin' controls the
"hot zone" for scrolling.  Making your cursor margin setting 10 or 15
pixels should help.
