Test case project files
I've hit this weird bug with MonoMac on Lion:
When creating an NSStatusItem and opening its menu, all the menu items are disabled, even when they have actions attached to them.
This only happens when launching an app bundle standalone. This doesn't happen when running the app from within MonoDevelop, all menu items are clickable when running it this way.
I've reproduced this in the attached test case.
Open the project in MD.
Run the project: menu works as expected.
Create a .app using Project -> Create Mac Installer.
Open the bundle by double clicking it: menu doesn't work.
MonoMac version: 22.214.171.124
MonoDevelop version: 126.96.36.199
I have CCed Michael Hutchinson to this mail, because I believe he ran into a similar issue in the past.
The problem might be with the differences in Info.plist, but I can not be absolutely sure about it.
I doubt that this is a bug in the MonoMac bindings themselves, they are likely a problem with the packaging, but I do not know what is wrong, nor where to start with this.
For what it's worth, here's the diff between the project plist and the bundle plist:
--- Info.project.plist 2011-10-15 18:12:38.000000000 +0100
+++ Info.bundle.plist 2011-10-15 18:13:33.000000000 +0100

I've tried replacing the bundle plist with the project plist and then running the bundle, but it will crash on start without any messages.
Could http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/MenuList/Articles/EnablingMenuItems.html have anything to do with this?
No idea. Have you tried running the bin/Debug MD-built app bundle from outside MD, i.e. without running mmp?
This works fine.
Weird, so it has something to do with mmp and the absence of a launch script?
It seems so...
Here's a diff of both .apps:

If there's any more info you need, just say so.
FWIW, the SparkleShare project is blocked on this bug.
I cannot reproduce the problem with the attached project. It works fine, both when run from MD and when packaged.
What versions of the packages do you have?
I've had several people reproduce this problem.
Apologies in the delay in wrapping up this bug.
I'm unable to open the project attached in a modern version of Xamarin Studio / Xamarin.Mac. Please open a new bug if this is still an issue and attach a working repro case.
