Once again, thank you for an excellent response.

However, this metod didn't work for me. (Mac OS 10.2.4, all latest=20
update instealled.) It only updated if I opened the menu once more,=20
otherwise the information in this menu is stale.

Not that it's very important, after all, we have KisMac. :)
