Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

When focus is on the desktop, i.e the nautilus desktop pain, pressing the F10 key does not move focus to the indicators in the top panel. THis works fine when any application window has focus, and the menu bar is populated with menus.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open an application window, and press F10. Focus is moved to the first menu in the menu bar.
2. Give focus to the desktop/nautilus desktop pain, and press F10. Nothing should happen.

Luke, this is working as expected for me. Can you make sure you're fully updated, or for any other application that may be unexpectedly grabbing F10?

I tried minimizing, and fully closing all of my windows and F10 went to the Nautilus appmenu.

Yeah, this is not working for me again either. I can get to the top menu if the launcher has focus or if any other window has focus, but not the desktop pain.
