I don't have a command xtype, only ptype.  What do I miss?  Anyway, the
mouse tooltip over Qnil shows the same integer.

So I think xmenu_show returns nil in the bad case.

I continued debugging xmenu_show and found that after the call to
`create_and_show_popup_menu', `menu_item_selection' is only != 0 in the
good case.

I tried to step through `create_and_show_popup_menu' as well, but that
makes any input from X impossible at some point, I had to kill gdb from
the console.

Michael.
