Disabling an Option Menu item

I'm experimenting now trying to decide if it looks weirder with a field and
a pop-up or switching the look and feel over to mac for that one card...

Any chance this will get fixed in time for 2.0? It seems odd that it works
under the Mac and Mosaic look and feel under windows, but not under the W95
look and feel.

Is it an issue with the Windwos interface standards? (What standards!?!?!)
