Double-clicking the menu bar should have the same effect as a single click.
If the menu was closed, it should open and not close again.
If the menu was open, it should close and not open again.

Be careful.. I've always thought of it as an (annoying) bug that most button 
controls in Windows programs ignore every second click, and I blame that bug on 
Microsoft for setting up the event handling in a way that makes it take extra 
work to make double clicks act like single clicks.  (This behavior might make 
sense for menus, though.)

What is worse is that this isn't absolutely true across *all* MS apps. (try it
in explorer and then office... mine disagree) Then again, when has MS been
consistent?

We should however make an attempt to detect accidental double-clicks (which
would be helpful on certain form controls and links too.)
