Sarah,

I think this was my problem.  I didn't realize menuPick wouldn't get sent
unless the menuHistory actually changed.  I'll give this a try.

And thanks to everyone else who responded as well.

The menuPick message doesn't get passed unless the menuHistory is 
changed.
YOu get round this by doing a test for the current menuHistory and if 
it is the same as the one you are about to set, either switch to a 
different menuHistory and then back to the one you really want, or send 
a menuPick specifically to the menu.

Cheers,
Sarah
