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
