If you create an app that uses Fl_Sys_Menu_Bar, but which has inactive or hidden items in it, then when displayed on OSX (where it does actually appear in the Apple menu_bar...) the hidden items are not hidden, and the inactive items are not inactive.

Probably not fixable, given the constraints of making it work with the Apple menu bar, but thought I'd log the issue anyway.

Attached is a tweaked version of the standard menubar demo program that illustrates the problem, and a screenshot showing the sys_menubar in action alongside a "conventional" menubar for comparison.

Also noted in this demo is that the check-box menu button in the menubar does not function at all in sys_menubar - but I had never noticed that before since I've never put buttons on the menu bar anyway!

I did fix the top-level invisible menu items. I was not able to fix the disbaled items to gray out, but at least all children of that menu become disabled. I wonder if that is possible at all. Anyway, I did what I could to improve the hack.
