not a workaround, but a Transcript.. errr.. 
Revolution term for the same thing (ie handling 
menu messages) is


used for popups as well. Menus are actually all buttons in Rev.


from the docs:

Sent to a button when a menu item is chosen from 
the menu associated with that button.

on menuPick theItem -- in a pulldown menu
   if theItem is "Close" then close the defaultStack
   else if theItem is "Quit" then quit
end menuPick

Handle the menuPick message to do something when 
the user chooses a menu item from a button menu, 
or chooses a tab in a tabbed button.
