I remember that extra parameters were added to control menu item labels 
and such but I thought the shrinking bug was unrelated to that. I 
believe the shrinking had to do with destroystack, and to bypass the 
problem it needed to be false...but in Charles' case that's true. I 
mean, it's false already. Destroystack is, I mean. In this case.
