   MENU BEGIN [tagname]
   Begin/end a submenu. The entries between MENU BEGIN and MENU END form a submenu, which is marked with a > mark on the right hand of the screen. Submenus inherit the properties of their parent menus, but can override them, and can thus have their own backgrounds, master passwords, titles, timeouts, messages and so forth.

I wasn't able to see the same (supposedly inherited) menu title in the submenu as it is displayed in the parent menu, unless I specifically _repeat_ the MENU TITLE directive in the cfg file.
I wonder if I am making some mistake, or if the info stating that the submenu inherits the properties of the parent menu (including the title) is inaccurate. Or maybe..., is this a bug?
