Thanks, Sarah. I did finally find this note: "Cross-platform note:  On 
Mac OS and OS X systems, when opening a menu-bar menu, the mouseDown 
message is sent to the button's group, not to the button itself. Place 
the handler in the menubar group's script."  Unfortunately, it wasn't 
in the main section on Menus where it specifies putting the handler in 
the Button script.

Sigh. This could have been clearer.
