A yes, now indeed I see it... dired has more items in its main menu, and
it tries to fit them all into one line...

... maybe then one workaround would be to use a smaller font for the
menu. But how does one do that? I tried putting the following into my
~/.Xdefaults, but it did nothing :-(

Emacs*menubar*Font:             -*-*-bold-r-*-*-*-80-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*

Yeah, that's also why I was so puzzled how it could even make it into a
released version :-)

No problem :-)
