This is toolkit-dependent, I think.  At least, on MS-Windows it
doesn't happen (i.e. the menu stays on even after you release
mouse-1).  The same happens on MS-DOS and I think with native
non-toolkit menus (on X without a toolkit) as well.

Which is what? that you can release the button without the menu
popping down?  I won't mind that, but please make sure your code works
in a non-toolkit build.
