It's an app bug. Windows does not have that option so applications do not
watch for suddenly changes on window positioning. A smart program could
check for that flag using API everytime the menu is clicked to show the
correct state. A simple test in windows is to use winlister (
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/winlister.html) and make the program topmost
simulating what you do with gnome context menu, you will notice that the
application does not update the menu item.
