Bug: C-h c gives the wrong answer for a menu item, and fails to display it.

Emacs 22.0.50 on a Linux tty:
M-` ; to open a menu buffer
o ; activate "options"
C-h c ; This prompts with "Describe key (or click menu item): "
This puts the message "C runs the command tmm-shortcut" in the *Messages*
buffer. This is wrong:
(i) The correct answer is, of course, "C runs the command cua-mode".
Saying "tmm-shortcut" is just as true and just as helpful as saying
"C-M-a runs the command eval".
(ii) The message should appear in the echo area. It doesn't. Instead,
there is a short pause (2 seconds) before the echo area reverts to its
previous prompt (the one asking for a menu option).
