[Rd] winMenuAdd

The following

for (i in 1:20) winMenuAdd(paste("X",i, sep="/"))

generates an (incorrect) error after adding 12 menu items:

Error in winMenuAdd(menuname, NULL, NULL) :

        unable to add menu (base menu does not exist)

More elaborate examples (e.g., adding menu items to each menu) create other errors (e.g., "Only 16 menus are allowed"), and the original example (at
https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/bioconductor/2005-November/011010.html) crashes with SIGSEGV in rui.c:1389. I think the basic problem is that there is a hard-coded limit of 16 menus. The limit is reached in Bioconductor, as packages add vignettes.

R version 2.2.0, 2005-11-21, i386-pc-mingw32

attached base packages:
[1] "methods" "stats" "graphics" "grDevices" "utils" "datasets"
