Could you please tell me where to find this bug, if it was reported before? Or mark this as a duplicate, because without this information, changing this bug to Invalid is not justified, in my opinion. Thank you in advance.

we get some thousand bug email a day at the moment so looking for number is not really an option, gtk needs to grab key events to get menus working that's a known issue and there is plenty of bugs about it, easy to find on launchpad or google search
