Right. So no hotkeys or function keys work when a menu or applet is down
and it is a design choice. I personally don't think that leaving it at
that is really the optimal solution.

I can't think of any of the hotkeys in question being used in the menus,
but I'll accept that it is possible. Wouldn't the better solution be to
allow global hotkeys, but to give priority to the menu/applet if any of
them happen to set Fn+PrntScrn etc as a shortcut?

** Summary changed:

- Impossible to switch desktop when an applet menu is unfolded
+ Can't use any global keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys when applet/menu is open
