It seems we are all having a difficulty communicating. Here is a 
thesaurus entry for the issue at hand -

1a) The PARENT of the submenu item does not generate an event when a 
mouseup occurs on it.

1b) The menuItem which has a submenu, does not generate an event when a 
mouseup occurs on it.

1c) The item which you put your mouse on, from which the submenu 
appears, does not generate an event when a mouseup occurs on it.

1d) The source item for the submenu, does not generate an event when a 
mouseup occurs on it.

2) The submenu items themselves, DO generate events when a mouseup 
occurs on it.

Everyone agrees on this, I think.
