I had the same behaviour, just the same on a mac like you.
I've resolved the problem so :
I've removed the menubar with the menu manager and re-create just the 
same menu.
Then I set the bg behavior property to true and I wrote a little 
script for the already existing cds (they haven't the new created 
menu !)

repeat with x = 2 to the number of cds of this stack
place grp <theNameOfYourMenuBar> onto cd x
end repeat

Since that is my problem absolutely resolved.

Hope this help.
