I think this is not a bug, it's the documentation that is not clear
here. The above is only useful in conjunction with -A in which case
the description given with -d is shown as timeout text.
It is what I thought but even with the -A option it doesn't work:
menu -m test -s -A 10 -d "test2"
So test2 is correctly selected for timeout (test2 8) but when the countdown
terminate I obtain
this means that the command executed is test1
Moreover, I think it should be usefull to have a -A infinite timeout
options with a preselect option to help someone choose the next step or the
About the -S -n <num> option I also think it is redundant but maybe someone
thought implementing -S -d <desc>
