      Description

      I have added a menu 'Get' to the menu bar. 'Get' menu contains another sub-menu 'Get Messages For' and a menuitem 'Get Messages'. Mnemonics are assigned as follows:

      'Get' - ALT + G
      'Get Message For' - 'ALT + F'
      'Get Messages' - 'ALT + M'

      I am doing the following to reproduce the bug:

      1. Press 'ALT + G' - Will open up 'Get' menu (Will have one menu item and one sub-menu).
      2. Press 'ALT + F' - Will open up 'Get Messages For' sub-menu (this will have 2 menu items)
      3. Press 'ALT + G' again - Will close the sub-menu and retain only the 'Get' menu.
      *4. Press 'ALT + G' again - This will open up the sub-menu 'Get Messages For' whose mnemonic is actually ALT+F*

      The last behavior (4) shown above is a buggy behavior since ALT+G is not supposed to open the sub-menu whose mnemonic is ALT+F.

      This is reproducible on SolSparc10, WinXP with Tiger-FCS as well as Mustang. Run the attached test and follow the steps mentioned above.
