I haven't found the cause, but I have some more information and a more
convenient workaround when it happens.

The situation seems to happen when I pop up a menu, don't select an
item, and then type something.  To avoid that, if I pop up a menu and
then change my mind, I move the mouse into and out of a random window
so that the focus changes.  That avoids the problem.

When it hangs, you can unhang it by killing the menu process.  I use
alt-TAB to select a shell window, use ps | grep menu to find the menu
process, and then kill it with a kill -9.  Sawfish will then restart
the menu helper the next time you click on the root.
