I belive you found a bug in the menu button widget (the bump you see
on the right of the entry is a menu button after all).

If you try this script, it will exhibit the same behavior:

        (menubutton '.foo :text "foo" :menu '
        (menu '
        (pack .foo)

but the corresponding script in wish8.0 will work as expected:

        menubutton .foo -text "foo" -menu
        pack .foo
