Thanks, that works, however it seems hard to discover. I actually
already knew about F10, I just didn't know that if you kept scrubbing
right past the application's menus that you would get to the
indicators and me menu. Especially since when you've selected an
indicator or the me menu, the application menus are still hidden.
