      Description

      Oracle Menubar can not be reused on Win32:

        If a MenuBar is reused on win32, it grows in height to a size of one normal
        height x number Of top level submenus. Also, some of those top level submenus
        wont display their labels. click "replace menu" again, all submenu label will
        show vertical instead of horizontal. The menu system is fairly unusable at
        this point. (Reused means removing all items and then adding new items, which
        we have to do because the API doesn't support insertion at a specific point)

      Test case:
