Note that this may cause brief menu flickering if the very next event is 
windowDidBecomeKey for another window with a non-null menu bar. But we 
really can't predict whether a window belonging to our app will receive 
focus or not, so there doesn't seem to be a better way to handle this 
situation anyway. I'd suggest to add a comment here stating that the 
problem is known.

The fix looks fine otherwise. Please consider it approved.

best regards,
