Jay, in additon to the visibile/invisible work that you did, we also need to look for the gtklabel/gtkimage being insensitive (it's a Gtk.WidgetFlag like VISIBLE was).

Yep, the menu is still accessible on the initial focus of the window, even if the menu is greyed out. If the menus are updated, from then on it seems to work okay, so we are obviously missing some checks.

summary: - inactive menus are accessible
+ Inactive menus are accessible on opening a window
