How to use gs:menu() as a pop-up inside a frame/canvas?

I've been trying to come up with the solution to this problem all day.
Unfortunately, the docs only seem to hint at this feature being available and I
can't find any similar contributed code anywhere.

How can I create a pop-up menu inside of a frame?  I have a canvas with several
items on it, and I would like to bring up a menu when a user right-clicks on an
item.  I can build the menu just fine, but it never displays.  I've tried
config'ing the object with {map, true}, {active,true} and {post_at,{X,Y}} in
all different combinations, but nothing happens.

While looking thru the gs source, I noticed some comments about comments about
some config options being "not implemented".  Could it be that the pop-up stuff
was never quite completed?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  I can provide my test code if
