Bug Description

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

1. Press F10
2. Try to navigate on the panel

EXPECTED OUTCOME:

First menu on the panel is open, and then you can navigate for the rest of the panel. This is one of the official shortcuts. You can find it in different places of the net:
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/list-of-ubuntu-unity-keyboard-shortcuts.html
http://www.techdrivein.com/2011/04/31-useful-ubuntu-1104-unity.html

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
Nothing happens.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

I will tag this as a11y, although this is a general bug, as anyone could find useful to navigate by the panel using the keyboard, and panel keynav doesn't depend on the a11y (ATK) support.

While not a regression for unity-2d so far as I am aware, using F10 to access the unity-2d panel is also not possible.

Investigated this, compiz was not giving Unity the key-up event for F10 and Jason was going to dive further to figure out why.

Found out that keeping F10 pressed pops up the menu :/

I did a trivial hard-code binding fix for this issue in https://code.launchpad.net/~sil2100/unity-2d/trunk.lp839628 - but as Saviq noticed, this might not quite be the solution we are looking for. It's now a question who ultimately should be the one to pick up the F10 handling - the application, or unity? My fix makes unity-2d-panel be the one in control.
