      Description

      Here's an interesting bug/rfe sent in by one of my ISV's.

      I'm not sure whether it's a bug or rfe, I'll let you decide.

      In the case of a mnemonics conflict, preference is given to the top level menu instead of the menuItem below the selected menu.

      The attached sample program shows the problem.

      To test:
      1. Run the example program:

      java AcceleratorTest

      2. Note that when you press "Alt f c" that the Custom menu gets
      selected instead of File->Close.

      Although the selection of File->Close is *not* what you would normally see under Unix, it *is* what's considered normal behavior under WinNT.

      In essence, the behavior is not what Window "power users" expect to see, at least, my ISV (SolidWorks) is complaining.
