bug#11148: 23.3; x-popup-menu not behaving as documented

From: Dino Chiesa
Subject: bug#11148: 23.3; x-popup-menu not behaving as documented
Date: Sun, 1 Apr 2012 08:45:12 -0700

These tests were performed on Windows.
As documented here
if the binding on a menu item is nil, then the mnenu item is
But this elisp code:
    (x-popup-menu t (list "TITLE" (list
                                (list "menu item 1" nil)
                                (list "menu item 2" nil))))
...shows a menu in which both items are selectable.
This bug may be relevant to bug #11138. One of the proposed fixes for
#11138 at the time of this report is to render a multi-line dialog box
as a menu, with each "line" in the message displayed as an unselectable
menu item.  But this brief test seems to indicate that the
"unselectable" menu items are not really unselectable, at least on Windows.
In that case the proposed fix would be unsatisfactory.
I'd like to also raise a documentation bug, as well: there ought to be
examples showing how to use x-popup-menu, on the page I cited above.
A few simple examples will make this method much more usable.
In particular, if the result I reported here is due to incorrect usage on my part,
providing examples in the documentation is the way to fix it. Even if I am using
this function correctly, this example (and others) ought to be put into the
documentation to illustrate the proper use of "unselectable" menu items.
