substitute-key-definition problem with menus in Emacs 21

(substitute-key-definition 'customize-group

If I do this in Emacs 20, then `C-h k' and pick, in menu-bar:
Help>Customize>Specific Group, it tells me that it runs command
customize-group-other-window, as I would expect: "menu-bar help-menu
customize customize-group runs the command customize-group-other-window"

If I do it in Emacs 21, and pick the equivalent Options>Customize
Emacs>Specific Group, it tells me that it still runs command
customize-group: "<menu-bar> <options> <customize> <customize-group> runs
the command customize-group"

Similar uses of substitute-key-definition seem to work in Emacs if the key
binding is not a menu item. It seems broken for menu item bindings in Emacs

What gives? Do I have to use substitute-key-definition somehow differently
in Emacs 21? I can't really tell if this is a bug or just operator
ignorance. I see nothing in the Emacs NEWS that speaks to this.

BTW, I notice that I can now do this as an alternative:

(define-key global-map [remap customize-group]

That works. Why doesn't substitute-key-definition still work with menus?
