Jesse's comment from email:

BTW I've noticed that often the first time you
select some menu item 
in stavbicka whose name is computed (to include a
project or file name), 
it will be rendered too small, so that the menu
text is truncated and the 
accelerator hint overwrites part of it. If you
move away and go back 
to the item it looks fine.Ultimately may be solved
best by #35827 
(along with God knows what else). In the meantime
it looks like some 
bug in PlaceHolderAction - maybe enable() needs to
fire a change in 

I know how to fix this for submenus - cf. - 
but for menu items in the first-level menus, I'm
not sure. 
Dynamic changes to menu items are not all that
well supported by the 
NB APIs, though it seems to work just fine in
Swing so long as you 
make any changes *before* returning something from 
JMenu.getPopupMenu (so that all the size
calculations etc. 
get the correct values).

Tim might have something to say about this w.r.t. Mac OS X.
Comment 2 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-03 13:20:34 UTC
Reassigning to winsys. The actions are now javax.swing.Actions which
fire the properties correctly. Menus should react automaticaly IMHO.
Comment 3 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-03 13:21:04 UTC
Changing subcomponent
Comment 4 Jesse Glick 2004-05-03 17:44:55 UTC
