Menu filter triggered too early

While fiddling with the menu filters in AUCTeX I ran into a problem
with the filter functions being called too early, i.e. during the
execution of `easy-menu-define'.  This happens only if
`easy-menu-define' is called in a load file.  You can use the
following call for testing:

(easy-menu-define nil (current-global-map) "foo"
  '("Foo" ("Bar" :filter (lambda (ignored) (message "Hello!")))))

If you execute it in a running Emacs session, the filter function will
not be called.  But if you put the form into a file, e.g. test.el, and
start Emacs with `emacs -Q -l test.el', you should see the "Hello!"
message in the echo area or in the *Messages* buffer respectively.

I expected the filter function to be called only when the menu is
being activated.
