Good to know. It was suggested that this code failing was evidence of
a bug in GTK+, though I feel it is more evidence of a design decision
wrt GUI philosophy rather than a bug. Having another toolkit which
appears to adopt the same/similar convention of not supporting top
level 'action' or 'buttons' in menus tends to support the design
decision stance rather than seeing it as a bug.
