I understand.  I do think the current behavior of menu filters (and
similarly for menu-bar-update-hook) is not great, but it takes work to fix
it and it's pretty far down the priority list (and it has to be fixed for
each and every toolkit, often in different ways for each toolkit, ...).

Note, tho, that as a user I'd be at least perplexed if clicking on the
menubar didn't open the menu immediately but instead proceeded to first
give me a prompt asking me to enter the name of the master file.  So even if
we fix the menu filters, it doesn't seem like a good solution to
your problem.
