PINKPANTHER: Some menu items are ignored

Description

Hi.
I'm trying to run "The Pink Panther: Passport to Peril (Windows/Hebrew)", and it ignores all Help menu items.
Running the game directly from Windows - these are working.

BTW,
I don't know if it's a bug, or an intent change, but the game menu from ScummVM behaves a little weird - I cannot click a title (like "game" or "help", and then click one of the items under it (like "new game") - instead, I have to keep the mouse clicked, from the moment I clicked the title, until I chose the menu item.
When running from Windows, it behaves normally.

Note - I see the menu in Hebrew, and reversed one (see bug #11316), I wrote here in my examples the assumed English translations.

We know that the menu behaviour actually matches Macintosh menus, this is why it "misbehaves" for you. Perhaps someday we will implement Windows behaviour.

As of the menus, the Help section is plainly opening *.HLP file at their different locations. Having this implemented would be way too much for this relatively small feature. However, maybe someday we would implement it. The problem there is not mere with parsing HLP files, but also displaying. Those files are written in Rich Text Format (RTF), and we do not have such component implemented as part of ScummVM. However, it could eventually come for the Director engine.

In the meantime, I implemented a stub for these menu items, so the users are less confused.
