OK, I trust that it works with the latest updates, I had not gone past 4769.

However, the menu keys also prevent desktop shortcuts from working, like
cmd-w for closing windows and so on. I think this has to do with the new
focus mechanism (as I thought the above did, heh). Clicking on the
background doesn't help.

I have no strong preference concerning leaving it on or off. I think that it
works reasonably well in itself now. I just wanted the bugs to go away...
