Bug Description

Dear Developers,

The com.canonical.indicator.datetime show-calendar setting value default is true.
If this setting is true, when an Orca user activate the date/time indicator, after move the second silent menu item, keyboard focus is grabbed, and impossible to use any Orca keyboard command.
Only possible to resume the date/time indicator menu system if the user clicking for example a cursor routing cell with he's braille display, or click Orca flat review binding for example a separator. Impossible for example switch other window, or leave the opened date/time indicator menue with escape key.
If the com.canonical.indicator.datetime show-calendar setting is false, all awailable menu items possible accessible with keyboard and Orca, and this problem are not happening.
The com.canonical.indicator.datetime show-calendar value change to false is a temporary fix, bug because near the final Precise release, need hiding this problem with screen reader users.
I attaching a video with full demonstrate the problem, and will be attaching a patch.
