It sounds like there's a bug in the NS code: the menu should probably
either not exist under a tty, or be filled with appropriate elements.

But the tty-menu code should also correctly handle an empty menu.
E.g. if I do:

emacs -Q -nw
M-: (global-set-key [menu-bar test] '(menu-item "Test" (keymap "Test"))) RET

then f10 just tells me "Empty menu" and doesn't let me move to
another menu.
