Bug Description

When navigating desktop right click menus using keyboard navigation, the focus should not 'wrap' (e.g. when the focus reaches the top or the bottom of the menu, a further press loops the focus to the opposite end).

Having hard stops helps user orientation, and wrapping can be confusing esp. on small lists. See the the Launcher quicklists as an example of a small list that does not wrap.

Desired resolution:

- Desktop menus should not wrap. This will make them consistent with the behaviour of Launcher quicklists.
