Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

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

Appendix "D.2 Table of X Resources for Emacs" of the Emacs
info manual states that:

| `menuBar' (class `MenuBar')
|      Give frames menu bars if `on'; don't have menu bars if `off'.
|      *Note Lucid Resources::, and *note LessTif Resources::, for how to
|      control the appearance of the menu bar if you have one.

Yet, "on" produces *no* menu bar; you have to use "1" to
enable it. "off" on the other hand works as expected (maybe
silently cast to "0"?).


The documentation has stated this a long time, but it has never been true. The code expects a number, and 0 is off, anuthing else is on.

There is also a mention of the resource menuBarLines that doesn't exist, it was renamed to menuBar in 1994. I guess that is where the 1 and 0 comes from.

It is easy to fix, but as 23.2 is approaching, I guess the Emacs maintainers must give their Ok.
