I'm just guessing here, but if you open the menu where the cursor is 
forced not to be in the top left of the menu titlebar, ie the bottom of 
the screen and release it it will open/execute whatever command the 
cursor happens to be next to, perchance this could be "exit", apparently 
this is a known bug 'twixt xor and woodblock.

My menu is about the same size as yours and i can't reproduce the mouse 
wheel thing, or have really any trouble with it, other than the afore 
mentioned, and i use menus for everything; also i am using cvs so maybe 
it is fixed?
