main menu bar caption won't change?

I can't seem to change the captions of the menu bar
itself in an MDI app.  It seems this code should work...

  File1.Caption := 'File NOT!;

...but I have to play with the program for while before
it finally redraws the caption I want.

When no child windows are up, it does work.  The child
windows do merge their menus with the main menu.

  Delphi 1.0
  MDI app
  main menu bar captions won't change for child windows
   (Items in the menu bar change just fine!)
