OK so I took a closer look at some of my code that seems to work on both UNIX
and Windows.... I do use Pmw but I don't use Pmw.MenuBar the following works
for me on at least Linux and Windows (ME) I will test it on 2000 when I am
next in the office.
from Tkinter import *
filemenu.add_command(label="Exit", command=root.quit, underline=1)
menubar.add_cascade(label='File', menu=filemenu, underline=0)
## I think this may be the problem in Pmw?
## I can't see this sort of call in Pmw.MenuBar
