In GNU Emacs 21.3.2 (hppa2.0-hp-hpux10.20, OSF/Motif Version 1.2.6)
 of 2003-03-31 on delphi
configured using `configure  -prefix=/pd/emacs21.3 --with-x-toolkit=motif 
--x-libraries=/usr/lib/X11R6/:/usr/contrib/X11R6/lib -with-jpeg -with-tiff 
-with-png -with-gif --without-gcc'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

With emacs 21.3 cascading-menus in popup-menus don't work as expected.
Click SHIFT-Mouse1 on the edit area.
The "Font menu" pops up.
Here it contains three entries "Misc", "Courier" and "Fontset".
Each of this is a cascading submenu.
If you move the mouse over one of the entries _with_ SHIFT still
pressed, nothing happens. I have to release SHIFT over the selected
entry to have the menu pop out.
To change the submenu I have to set the mouse on the new entry and
then press and release the SHIFT.

This worked correctly with 21.2.
But 21.2. had the problem that cascading menus in the menu-bar didn't
work in a similar way:
To pop the menu out, (e.g. Edit/Search) one had to _release_ the
mouse-button over the entry.
This problem was fixed in 21.3. (Maybe there is a connection between these).
