I've done some more testing with this and uncovered a problem that I
am about to dig in to a little more.

Since this change, the functions fl_set_menu_item_mode and
fl_get_menu_item_mode no longer work unless the menu item's index is
the same as it's value. It doesn't matter if you specify an index or a
value to these functions -- if the two are different, they are
ignored. I suspect that something internally is inappropriately mixing
item indices and values, and had always relied on them being the same.

I've attached another test program that demonstrates this. The menu
(click on the word menu) items values are 5, 2, and 9 respectively.
Click the checkboxes then click on the menu. The checkboxes to disable
menu items only work for "green", where both the index and the value
are 2.

Maybe you have some insight, I'm also going to look through the code right now.
