That's true on Windows as well - position mouse over a menu item, 
depress the left button, move mouse side-to-side and different menus 
will appear/disappear. As that happens, mouseDown events are sent to the 
relevant menu buttons (Rev 2.5, WinXP).

Sorry, don't have my Mac Mini yet, so I can't test it there ....
