What about the other half of what Richard wrote: ``make the enabling
and disabling of items in the menu depend on its associated frame''
(which is the original problem that started this thread)?  When you
say ``it should be so already'', do you mean it already works?
Because, AFAIK, in the current code enabling/disabling menu items
depends on the variable menu-updating-frame, which is not set
correctly on some platforms, like the no-toolkit X build.
