"g" and "h" key open menus when typed in game.

Bug Description

Binary package hint: pynagram

When typed in the game, the "G" key and the "H" key open the Game and Help pull-down menus respectively.

This, logically, interferes with the game when words that contain "G" or "H" are entered.

As a note, my expected behavior is to require a modifier key, usually Alt/Meta to access the said menus. Typing the letters without the modifier key should make them behave as normal.

Thank you for filing the bug report!

I noticed this behavior once or twice before, but it wasn't 100% reproducible (in fact, I never seem to be able to reproduce when I try). I really have no idea what is causing this. I will try to investigate the problem and fix it (should the problem lie in pynagram's code).

Thanks again!

A possible work around for this, as suggested by Mike Ramirez [1], doesn't seem like something I would like to try to do. If we manage to find a way to reproduce the bug, I could try to look into it. Otherwise, it's going to take a while before I find the time to take a shot at this again.
