Most of the time/trails, the "Alternatives" menu does not open, when i set the panel to hide.
For me Alternatives menu doesn't open for just one time - after it Panel stops autohiding and Alternatives menu invokes every time

"Alternatives..." popup never shows up here with "Auto-hide" panel.

Similar issue on Plasma 5.19.2 (KDE neon)
When I click on "Show alternatives..." in an item on an auto hide panel, a pop-up window just flashes and disappear as the panel auto hides. This is true for clock, task manager, app menu, etc.
It work fine if say I first click on the clock to open the calendar and then right click on the clock to "Show alternatives..." as the open calendar window prevents the panel from hiding.

A little more info. Using the Auto hide panel I found I can work around this with-
A right click on the panel and then enter the edit mode. This allows me to choose the alternatives and even choose a different launcher as mentioned in bug #443853
The edit mode (right click on the Desktop) does not work as this does not bring up the panel edit options, which I would guess is correct.

This has been fixed with the Panel code refactor in Plasma 5.25!

It does not appear to me that this issue has been resolved.
That's strange, it's working fine for me. Differences between our setups are that I'm using Wayland on physical hardware, and you're using X11 in a VM.
This probably means that the general bug has been fixed, but there's still something specific to your setup that causes it to fail, beyond the original issue. Can you file a new bug report for that? Thanks!
My previous "fixed" comment #13 was in Wayland.
I just went back to x11 (for various reason's) and physical hardware and sadly it does not work every time. I would say 50% of the time. However as I posted in comment #10 it does work fine in edit mode and x11.
