In tk 8.0 and later, if you use toplevel.configure(menu = XXX)
to create a menu, that menu is treated in a system-dependent way.  On Unix,
this includes placing the menu with the title "help" on the right.
AFAIR, this does *not* happen on Windows.  It depends on the "system
standard" is, and how the tk folks interpreted it.

Otherwise, *don't* use -menu, but make a frame with menubuttons in it,
and pack them using the "pack" method.
