[Lazarus] Frames and menus

Running 1.1 r37373 GTK2 2.6.0. What I'm trying to do is put a main menu 
in a frame, which then only displays over part of the width of the 
containing form so that I can use the remainder for comboboxes.

What I'm finding is that when I tell the IDE to drop a frame onto the 
form, it displays a "Select Frame" dialog with no content. But if I 
first put a panel on the form "Select Frame" shows me the name of the 
frame I've prepared. Except when the reverse happens, i.e. I can't drop 
onto a panel but can drop onto the underlying form... it might depend on 
whether the sum of the number of components on the main form + that on 
the frame is odd or even.

In cases where I can get the drop to work, I don't see the main menu 
(can this be made to work?) but a popup on the frame works.
