Do those menus include non-ASCII characters?

There's a bug in all versions of Emacs older than the current trunk,
whereby whenever some call to AppendMenuW returns an error indication,
Emacs assumes that it is running on Windows 9X, and switches to
calling AppendMenuA instead.  Menu entries that include non-ASCII
characters not from the current locale will display as blanks or
question marks or just gibberish after that switch.  Maybe what you
see is some manifestation of that bug.
