Menu Question

    This is almost surely a FAQ, but...


    Is there some way I can invoke the motif-ish menus --i.e. the menus I get
    when I click-right on presentation-action-- in some other context?

    All other calls to a menu result in the standard clim-like menus (including
    when I try to reproduce what I find on the stack when I break in the middle
    of a right-button menu).

    (Ideally I would like to hand it the contents of a command-table, but
    invoked in some other context than a right-click.)


I believe that the method for FRAME-MANAGER-MENU-CHOOSE for the
Allegro Motif back-end looks at what the various arguments that have
been provided to MENU-CHOOSE are.  If it decides that the call to
MENU-CHOOSE is "too hairy" to use a Motif menu, it falls back to using
the more flexible CLIM menus.  What are the arguments you are passing
