([16777315] . " (H-c)") in a menu-item

Since the list server is down this weekend, I'm sending this to you FYI. The effect is very robust and very annoying, because after changing some menu items, stuff in the Edit menu doesn't work any more and gives me an error (wrong argument commandp).

I've been poking around trying to trace this bug for hours, but no luck so far.

I'm trying hard to put together an Aquamacs release that works on Tiger quickly.

This is a little strange.

(assq 'copy (lookup-key global-map [menu-bar edit]))
--> (copy "Copy" "Copy text in region to the clipboard" ([16777315] . " (H-c)") . clipboard-kill-ring-save)

What does this 16777315 do there? Is it supposed to be there??

Interestingly, it doesn't happen consistently. This is what it usually looks like:

(copy "Copy" "Copy text in region to the clipboard" . clipboard-kill-ring-save)

Now, at some point during my startup phase (many customizations), the menu item changes to the 'strange' entry. It is not easy to analyze when that change occurs. If I delete this and that in my init file, the bug just occurs at a later point. Either way, the keymap ends up being corrupted (or "augmented). The final result, however, very regular.

One suspect is define-key, such as in

(setq apple-char (string (decode-char 'ucs #X2318)))
; redefine New
(define-key menu-bar-file-menu [new-file]
'(menu-item (format "New %sN" apple-char) new-frame-with-new-scratch
              :enable (not (window-minibuffer-p
                            (frame-selected-window menu-updating-frame)))
              :help "Read or create a file and edit it"))

(which works on OS X)

Is this a bug?
If not, is 16777315 a code for a keyboard shortcut or something?

I get this with a recent (but patched) build on OS X 10.3.9

Any help appreciated!!!
