I do not know if event type 4 is still produced, but it was introduced in the
Mac OS VM, and there is in explanation in platforms/vm/Documentation/3.8.x Release Notes.rtf:

  sq.h  Added events, EventTypeMenu, EventTypeWindow to handle menu and window
  events generated by the Host OS and placed on the Squeak Event Queue to be
  read by EventSensor
