The Menu ID as used by the menu manager is NOT the same thing as the
MENU resource ID (used in the MBAR resource and with GetMenu()) When you
create a MENU, ResEdit sets the menu ID to the MENU resource ID, but if
you re-number the resource, you will have to open the menu in ResEdit
and change the menu ID using the "Edit MENU ID" menu item.
