When using the Default Theme (may be true of others as well, but not yet tested), I have an issue that when plugins add many items to the main-menu, the main menu becomes unwieldly long and exceeds the width of the rest of the page.

1) I would expect for the menu items to wrap nicely once they reach the screen width and not force me to scroll to see all of the items.

2) To make things worse, because the overall background is white, the menu items are unreadable unless hovering over them.

3) The issue appears to be related to the main application.css stylesheet located in public/stylesheets. #main-menu has set margin-right to be -500px. When this is removed, everything works as expected.

-- Is there a reason for this setting in the stylesheet? It would seem to cause some major formatting issues.
---> I do not want to manually change this on my system as it would then affect any future updates...
---> I know that I can make a custom theme that just overrides this item, and I will in the interim, but this seems to me to be an issue that other would be having as well.
