Here is another window system-related bug on Mac OS X that I just now
experienced. This one is 100% reproducible for me:

1. In DrRacket, in BSLA, go to Language->Add Teachpack...
2. Click Add Teachpack to List...
3. Press Cancel on the File Open dialog box that pops up.
4. Press Cancel on the teachpack dialog.

If you do this without switching to another program inbetween steps,
all of the entries on the DrRacket menu bar are gone after step 4,
except for the DrRacket menu, and you cannot Quit the program.
Switching to another program with Command-Tab, and then back to
DrRacket, restores the full menu bar.
