void        gtk_option_menu_set_history     (GtkOptionMenu *option_menu,
guint index);

Although not intuitively obvious, the above function seems to do the job
just fine.

If you've added 3 choices to your option menu, and want to make the
second choice the currently selected one, just set the 'index' number to
2. (I can't remember off hand if indexes begin at 0 or 1, but i'm sure
with some experimentation will be obvious).

As for the perl equivalent, I've never used gtk-perl, sorry...

Hope that helps.
