Which bug reports? I fail to find something related in Lazarus bugtracker, although I may be using 
wrong keywords.

I remember some UI design guide from M$, telling not to put images in menubars.
Maybe everyone is just following that guide :-)
Anyway, 'native' glyph support actually maps to Bitmap property of TMenuItem, and 
ImageList+ImageIndex properties map to custom draw (yes WinAPI requires a separate bitmap handle for 
every item).
