It's not normally a big deal, but there's obviously something that's going
screwy on your side.

Dave, give us a break! Don't forget that this is Thanksgiving Day here in
the US, and so I'm surprised there's anyone on the list to help you at all!
I understand you're frustrated, but get some perspective here...

Now, have you sent your stack to anyone to look at? If not, you can send it
to me and I'll try and figure out what the problem is.

BTW: One thing to check might be the layering order of your menu buttons.
According to the docs:

"For a menu bar to work properly on Mac OS and OS X systems, the menus must
be in layer order within the group. That is, the button for the File menu
must be numbered 1, the button for the Edit menu must be 2, and so on."
