I think this is the case.  I've started an up to date system from the
Emacs-24 branch, running on a GNU system on a Linux tty, with -Q.  I
configured the build with:

   ./configure --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no --with-gpm

.  The menus seem to work fine, except for one glitch.  When I click the
(GPM) mouse on a menu, the menu drops down beginning horizontally where
the mouse was, rather than where the menu label was.  I.e., I see this:

    File Ed Edit > ns Buffers Tools Lisp-Interaction Help
            Undo                    C-x u
            Cut                     C-w
    ...

, when I would rather expect to see this:

    File Edit > tions Buffers Tools Lisp-Interaction Help
         Undo                    C-x u
         Cut                     C-w
    ....
