Sometimes, the IssuesSystemTest#test_bulk_watch_issues_via_context_menu test fails for click_link loosing the focus on the context menu entry.
According to my googling, this seems to be a known sporadic Capybara issue. Solution seems to use find() instead of click_link. The hover seems to help ensure that click is not applied out of element boundaries whatever the javascript asynchronous execution.
Refer to this comment:

Adding sleeps either before or after click_link has no effect instead.

How to reproduce:
the following fails sporadically

RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rails test:system TESTOPTS="-n '/^(?:IssuesSystemTest#(?:test_bulk_watch_issues_via_context_menu))$/'"

Attached my proposed path. Thanks
