I can't even explain what this guy is trying to

In the menu bar, I have an entry called Definitions
and when clicked, produces a dropdown list of about 11
items. (fair enough)

In the toolbar, I have an icon
called...yep..Definitions. When I click the icon, I
get the SAME 11 ITEMS!!

No difference, they do the same thing.

Oh, I almost forgot. One of the items in the
Definitions menu bar is called "Agent Network", which
includes a sub-menu of seven items.

However, there is also a separate icon called "Agent
Network" with the same seven items...and they also do
the same thing.
