Yes, I think this is a bug in the perl, more specific in Perl/Tk, which
has only recently been fixed (2010-05-13) by a new version of Perl/Tk
(the first release after about 2 yeasrs ;-) I can find the following

	Fixed display of Unicode characters in Windows toplevel menus.

I will try to update our TeX Live Perl for the new Tk as soon as

THe font used is the *default* standard system font that is returned.
The perl code does not change any specific font nor any other
property of the font. 

SO I have no idea why the default font has not been selected.

Ahh, so sub menus are right, but the top level menu is wrong? So that
might be the same bug.

Thanks a lot for your contribution and all the best
