It's really not a workaround, but rather how it's done with Macs in Rev,
because of the platform differences. Mac menus are really button emulations,
not the real thing.

Check the windowbBoundingRect solution, too. Either technique needs to be
done in a preOpenStack handler. That's normal, AFAIK.

Note: My first stack had a fullscreen graphic set used for an onscreen
keyboard, so the very problems you are facing were the _very first_ I had to
deal with in Rev 1.1.

Please pay close attention to the experts, like Richard Gaskin. They know
what's going on. Also, take a look at Jacque's Rev tutorials:
