Close whisker menu when drop-down terminal is triggered

When a drop-down terminal is dropped down and I open whisker menu the drop-down terminal gets dropped up. On the other hand when the whisker menu is open and I trigger the drop-down terminal to go down the whisker menu stays down and keeps the focus. I think it would be more intuitive if whisker menu gets closed when the terminal appears. This bug gets me if I search for an application (like mousepad) and while i'm searching I realize that a terminal application (like vim) would be better for the task. When this happens I automatically trigger the drop-down terminal because I need a shell. Then the bug is appearing and I have to close whisker menu and use the mouse to get focus on the drop-down terminal.
There is also another bug where the drop-down terminal is only flickering down for a short time when you do the following combination with keyboard shortcuts:
- Drop down the terminal (xfce4-terminal --drop-down)
- Drop up the terminal (xfce4-terminal --drop-down)
- Open whisker menu (xfce4-popup-whiskermenu)
- Drop down the terminal (xfce4-terminal --drop-down) Maybe this has to do with the focus grabbing of whisker menu?
It would be great if whisker menu gets closed when the drop-down terminal appears. Maybe a workaround would be an option like "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu --up" in whisker menu? Then it would be possible to drop down the terminal with a keyboard shortcut that triggers "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu --up && xfce4-terminal --drop-down" But I don't know if this is a good solution for the problem...
Thank you for your great work :) cheers Frash
