Bug Description

1. Open any application with menu shortcuts (for example, any Nautilus window).
2. Press a menu keyboard shortcut (for example, Alt-F for "File").

Expected result: the corresponding item of the global menu bar opens.
Actual result: the "hidden" submenu of the local menu bar opens.

The part about displaying the menu in the local window is already fixed, but I'll keep this open for tracking the activation of the menu on the menubar.

Actually, I've already got another bug for tracking that. I'll close this one, as it should have been fixed in yesterday's releases.

Okay then maybe it's just not released, because the code is done.

I am still seeing this bug, exactly as described, under Unity in up to date 10.10.

However, I have noticed that I am completely unable to open specific menus with their shortcut keys (such as Alt+F for the file menu). Can't remember if that's changed from before.
