Bug Description

[Impact]
LIM Menu keyboard navigation is broken when mouse enters in new menu.

[Test Case]
1. Enable LIM
2. Open a window with menus (terminal) restored
3. Use the mouse to open a menu entry (or hit the accelerator such as Alt+F),
   then move the pointer over another menu
4. Use left/arrow keys (repeatedly) to navigate through menus now

Expected:
5. The menu navigation should properly work across the whole menubar

Actual:
5. Menu navigation stops and resets to the menu item where the mouse was

[Regression Potential]
Please make sure mouse navigation with LIM works properly.

---------------
unity (7.5.0+16.10.20160901.2-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  [ Andrea Azzarone ]
  * Disable menu discovery animation if MenusDiscoveryDuration is 0.
    (LP: #942962)
  * Redraw fake decorations on window resize. (LP: #940470)

  [ Marco Trevisan (Treviño) ]
  * InputMonitor: add an unity class that monitors XInput2 events and
    converts them to XEvent
  * EdgeBarrierController: use InputMonitor to get the barrier events
    instead of relying on its implementation
  * DecorationsMenuLayout: use input monitor for menu scrubbing (LP:
    #1614597)
  * PanelView: use InputMonitor to track menu events
  * LockScreenPanel: use InputMonitor events instead of mouse polling
    for menu scrubbing
  * MenuManager: add support for mouse trackers with triangle algorithm
    support (LP: #1618405)
  * PanelView: scale gradient refinement properly
  * PanelService: don't allow to deactivate menus if they've been opened
    too shortly
  * WindowButton: properly partially unmaximize a window when
    middle/left clicking in the restore button (LP: #1616136)
  * CMake: move data and setting files in proper folder, define shared
    libdir variables
