In the platforms other than the Cocoa/GNUstep port, menu bar is
uniformly activated by the x_activate_menubar call in
kbd_buffer_get_event, which is called from read_char.  However, the
Cocoa/GNUstep port activates the menu bar and starts mouse tracking in
the context of read_socket_hook, which is supposed to be called from
fairly random states of the Lisp interpreter.  (That port currently
calls read_socket_hook only from limited locations, and that makes
this problem obscured and the C-g handling improper.)

I think this difference becomes a major obstacle if that port is
planning to solve the C-g issue during the pretest period by following
the strategies that are used in some existing platforms.
