I can take it up from here. It might be difficult for me to fix it though since I can't reproduce it.

I spend a lot of time digging inside the general D&D mechanism of
GNUstep but couldn't find any reason why it should work for windows but
not for menus. So I went back to look inside of Gorm. A simple grep
(grep IBMenuPboardType ../../dev-apps/gorm/*/*) here tells me that we do
offer the type IBMenuPboardType from GormPalettesManager but there is no
view accepting it. If I just edit the list of accepted drag types of
GormViewResourceManager to include that type dragging works as expected.
Now I don't understand the inner structure of gorm, but I would expect
that this isn't actually the correct class for this drag type. But then
IBWindowPboardType is also listed here. Quite strange...

And another question remains open. Why is D&D of menus actually working
for Greg on so many machines? It working on Windows is easier to explain
as there we would not use the check in xdnd whether the window supports
the specific type.

Greg are you willing to take up from here and correct Gorm in the right
way or just add that type to GormViewResourceManager?
