[Edgy] Can't print screen when applet/menu down

Bug Description

I'm not sure where to file this, so please pass it on if I have chosen the incorrect package.

Normally, I can press Fn+Prnt Scrn and the "Save Screenshot" window appears. If I have a menu clicked (say I have opened up the Applications menu) or have clicked on the Gnome Power Manager Applet, the Prnt Scrn key no longer works.

This sounds trivial, but is a real issue when trying to create help/tutorials for anything involving applets or menus!

you can use the gimp's file -> aquire -> screen shot, and put a delay in.

the problem also happens with trying to change the sound volume and other short cuts while a menu is down.

i am sure i have seen this bug before, but i cant find it.
