I think "map" might be better than "map_event", since map_event
happens async after the menu has already been shown. Another
possibility is "activate" or maybe focus_in_event on the menu item
that has the to-be-filled menu as submenu. Would have to experiment.

GTK should really have a signal that's explicitly for this purpose,
