The SimpleMenu widget is a container for the menu entries.  It is a
direct subclass of shell, and is should be created with
<function>XtCreatePopupShell</function>, not <xref linkend='XtCreateManagedWidget' xrefstyle='select: title'/>.  This is the
only part of the menu that
actually is associated with a window.  The SimpleMenu serves as the glue to bind
the individual menu entries together into a menu.

position the menu directly under the pointer cursor.  The menu will be
placed so that the pointer cursor is centered on the entry named by the
