Questions concerning Pointer Documentation

Platform: Allegro 4.1, CLIM 1.1, SPARC, twm

I've got some questions concerning the pointer documentation of CLIM.

First, there's no pointer documentation displayed when the pointer is on the
scrollbars of a window. Although I don't feel that this is necessary, one may
argue that it may be useful to bind other commands than just scroll up/scroll
down (perhaps with modifier keys) to the scrollbars and to have pointer
documentation with them. In the moment, I think, the bars are just CLX windows
and there are no commands (and no translators) bound to them, therefore there
can't be a pointer documentation. Will that be the same in 2.0?

My other question concerns sub-menus. When running the example code below, the
commands in the submenu of the separated command table don't generate a pointer
documentation. Did I miss something in the doc?

Merry Christmas and a happy new year,
