If you start GDB in the src directory, or let it otherwise read the
file src/.gdbinit, you can know for sure: the "xtype" command will
tell you what kind of Lisp data is in 'selection':

  (gdb) p selection
  (gdb) xtype

If "xtype" says it's a Lisp symbol, another command "xsymbol" will
tell you what symbol is that, it will say "nil" if it is nil.

In general, as long as the menu pops up, you should see the selection
made by the user.  The binding should only determine whether the menu
pops up or not, AFAIK.
