When inserting a table on top of a page, the table tools are over the toolbar, refer to screenshot.
That disturbs Eg. when a dropdown is positioned there.
This is the expected design of this button. It is not part of the content area of the editor because otherwise it will be clipped on the left hand side and the end user will have a hard time clicking it. Such a button behaves in the same way in MS Word - it is positioned a bit to the left of the table and may obscure some elements (http://screencast.com/t/oOPWIf39), but you can always clicck outside of the table in order to hide it.
