+Summary: arrow keys don't seem to be working reliably in menus
+(15:25:59) toshok: Alt-F opens File, but arrows aren't moving into the menu
+(15:26:34) mkestner: I spent a fair amount of time making it all work like MS
+(15:26:56) mkestner: wraparound, etc...
+(15:27:00) toshok: nod
+(15:27:17) toshok: I'd be willing to bet the bug is just that the key
+events aren't making it to the menu code
+(15:27:23) mkestner: probably focus fixes
+(15:28:31) ***jackson hides
+(15:28:50) toshok: hehe
+(15:29:17) mkestner: we have some interesting mouse event stealing code in
+Form, we may need to do something similar for keys now that focus is fixed
+(15:29:43) mkestner: interesting == extremely hackish
+(15:32:17) toshok: yeah, it's weird behavior
+(15:32:34) toshok: if you Alt-F, the menus appear and you can left/right
+and get other toplevel menus
+(15:32:46) toshok: but nothing (not keyboard, not mouse) highlights submenu
+(15:33:51) toshok: weird.  I had it working there a second ago
+(15:34:04) toshok: but I had to use the mouse to activate the main menu item
+(15:34:11) toshok: now I can't get it working again
+(15:34:16) toshok: anyway, filing a bug :)
