Bug Description

[Impact]

Pressing the Alt key while a locally integrated menu is open causes the menu to hide.

[Test Case]

Prerequisite: from Appearance -> Behavior -> Set menu visible in window titlebar

1. Open a window with menus
2. Press and keep pressed the Alt key
3. Menus will show
4. Move the mouse over the window decoration
5. Move the mouse out from the window decoration

Incorrect behavior:
6. Menus hides, also if the Alt key is pressed.

Expected:
6. Menus should stay visible until the Alt key is released.

[Regression Potential]

Additional incorrect menu behaviour may be introduced.

[Other Info]

The fix for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS was cherry picked from the Ubuntu "Vivid Vervet" dev release where it has been in use for some time without apparent regression.
