I am going to test this and report back, I believe this is currently working, but I am NOT sure.

If you pull up submenus in an application by clicking on items in parent menus (rather than clicking and dragging) then the submenus stay up after you release the mouse button.  This is fine (because they need to stay up so we can tear them off), but if you subsequently click elsewhere (in another app or in a window in the same app) the submenus should all be closed, but currently that doesn't happen.

The correctness of this behavior is perhaps debatable in general, but when the interface style for menus is NSMacintosInterfaceStyle the submenus should definitely be closed upon mouse down anywhere outside the menu (because that's what the mac does) and I think it should be the case for other menu styles too.
