    gnome: when the application menu is open, shortkeys don't work anymore

    Hi All,

    my laptop has some special keys, start/pauze, stop, rewind, forward, volume down, volume up and eject. These keys work fine.

    The above keys don't work when the applications menu at the top-left of the screen is activated.

    Is there a way to let the special keys work when the application menu is activated?

    My system:
    Ubuntu 8.10 on a dell vostro 1710

    Best regards,
    Cedric

    I just noticed this behaviour on my laptop today. When any menus are open the Media and Fn keys don't work. I assume this is the 'normal' behaviour. I am just curious as to why this happens?
