Did you update your MBAR Resource? Particularly if you've added Menus.

There is also the mctb Resource to check. I imagine PG may make these items
even more difficult to coordinate. I don't use PG, or haven't so far, so I
don't know if you should have the same concerns or not.

Sometimes, prior to 8.6 I didn't have all colors show up properly. With 8.6
all of the colors are where they should be, although you may have to be
careful about updating Menus/Menu items that have color; sometimes a
reinitialization causes the color to be lost. I've solved this in most (but
not every) case.

Good Luck,
