This has nothing to do with menus of applications. We are not talking about
the root, but about the Application specific menu of the app.

The application keeps its own menus. So it was, so it will be.

If gimp sets some menu it looks like:
  File -> New
          (more stuff)
  Xtns -> DB Browser
          Screen Shot
          Script Fu -> ...
          Web Browser -> ...

What we think about is to remove this bar from gimp and put it into the
windowmaker appmenu in perfect nextstep style.

Try to run test/test from WindowMaker. This should give you the hint you need.

Hope this helps.
