Sorry for any inconvenience.

I agree, putting a note on this into the menu.c file would have been a good idea.
If you don't disagree, I will move the item back to it's former place, and place an explanatory  comment,

Well, at the time implementing the menu changes, my own knowledge of GUI things were a lot more limitted than today :-)

Hmmmm, as we are using very different platforms, I would think that the Gnome HIG *cannot* be the final word to settle all UI disputes, although it *is* a good guideline.

And I fear there won't be a final word on these GUI topics at all :-(

Do we want to drop a note to the Gnome HIG people, that this point seems to be unintuitive, as noted by many persons? 

Me personally, I think they did a great job writing this HIG, but everything can be improved...
