Thanks for checking. I'll remove the debug print statements, turn off verbose logging, and send it out for review. I would appreciate a thorough review of the code. Given the way JavaFX initializes the macOS application and sets the system menu bar, this seems like the least intrusive and least risky fix, but it would be nice if we can find a better fix that isn't overly complicated or risky.
