I took a look at this (with Woodley's initial pointers) at DELPH-IN this summer, and have a rough outline of how to build it. I still plan to have a go at it once more pressing things are complete. :)

You can usually get it to work after a couple of tries by control-clicking and then moving the mouse outside of the menu while the menu renders, but it is a bit hit-and-miss, and definitely a bug.  Unfortunately there are so many layers of unmaintained code and deprecated OSX APIs involved there that I'm not sure even where to begin in trying to solve it.  I will take note though that the population of people using the Mac version of LUI and suffering from that bug is increasing... and hopefully some day find a really good way of moving LUI into the 201st or 202nd decade.
