It is a MacOS 8.5 problem. Menus do go funny on some programs
- all oldish 68K programs. I've tested this on 5320 and a G3 (B&W).

For example, the problem I have is with my very own favorite PG:PRO 4
(which I use with FBII) - the menus go wonky on the Menu Editor
- but it seems to be just cosmetic,
the program is "ok". It seems like some conflict with the Appearance
Manager
(just a guess). Does it do the same even after a re-compile?
