tim_sa: selected customize code

MackSix: Repeatable.

MackSix: Dragged a JCheckBox into a menu bar and it took and showed as a collapsed pimple on the lower left corner of menu bar. I then right clicked on it in the Navigator to bring up the menu to delete it and this Exception was thrown.

GUEST: Trying to put an horizontalglue to a menu so that the help menu keeps aligned on the right.

Designer allows you to put just about any component on a JMenuBar and this is thrown if you bring up the context menu on it in Navigator and move mouse cursor across the menu.
