bug#7106: Unable to customize menu-bar startup from .emacs file

Upgrading to 23.2.1 fixed this. Is there a process for letting Apple know that their stock installation is broken? I *am* using an older version of the OS so it might be fixed in 10.6.*. I don't know what kind of relationship gnu.org has with Apple; if there's a process for this it might be beneficial to push this to them.

Thanks again for looking into this. I appreciate it.

Note the (menu-bar-mode t). When I fire up emacs, I have to M-x menu-
bar-mode to get a menu bar.

Works for me in GNU/Linux with Emacs 22.1 through 23.2.
Note that the menu-bar is on by default anyway, so you should not need
to do anything in the first place.

I am concluding, then, that the problem lies with this particular

In GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (mac-apple-darwin, Carbon Version 1.6.0)
of 2009-11-23 on Avericity.local

I am afraid that is quite old and no longer supported. Please try the
latest, Emacs 23.2.

As a workaround, you could stick

(menu-bar-mode 1)

at the end of your .emacs.
