    menuItem is not highlighted in 3.1.4 when it was in 3.1.2

      I've recently updated from RichFaces 3.1.2 to 3.1.4 and am suddenly facing a problem with menuItems.

      The root problem is that I did not find out how to have menuItems without putting them into a dropDownMenu. My menu structure has two drop down menus (with menuItems in them), but one third sole item which must be active by itself, like in

      File Edit Logout
      Open Copy
      Save Paste
      ... ...

      With 3.1.2, this was not a too big problem. I simply used a menuItem outside a dropDownMenu, and everything worked fine.

      But in 3.1.4, a menuItem outside dropDownMenu is displayed (and clickable), but absolute no optical effect. No highlight when touched with the cursor, and even worse, the wrong cursor shape ("text" cursor instead of "hand" cursor) so nobody guesses he may click there.

      I think in your eyes this will be an improvement (make the life harder for the guys who abuse menuItem tags), but do you have any suggestion for me what I could do instead?

      (Wrapping one single item into an own [or some other] drop down menu is not an option.)

      Thank you .....
