You may be giving the pop-up-menu dialog-item an explicit :view-size
which is smaller than you want. I think the view-default-size method
will do the right thing if you don't specify a :view-size.
I'm not sure what would happen if you add menu-items on the fly. You
probably have to recalculate the view-size yourself.
By the way, I just posted my personal patch for pop-up-menus. It's in
Here are the new features:
* Pop-up-menus now pop-up in the view-font.
* Allow pop-up-menus to be installed in the menu bar as regular menus.
* Fixed view-default-size to handle fixed string item-display better.
* For fixed string item-display, pop-up menu now looks more like a regular
menu: the title highlights and the pop-up lines up below it.
