	Hello, Tomas. The fix for the stuck menus is not Ctrl-Alt, it is only Alt. I 
have completely isolated. And it is *irritating*. A lot.

	I have a lot of these problems with Klipper and the main menu, and I remember 
a couple with OO.org, and another couple with Firefox.

	I do not know if the last Alt-Tab fix in XFree4.3 (version 4.3.0.dfsg1-6) 
will fix this:

  * Grab from XFree86 CVS (2003-08-22) a fix for the problem some window
    managers have seeing Alt key release events (commonly known as the
    "Alt-Tab problem").  (Closes: #254973)

	I upgraded my laptop yesterday, but I have not run XFree86 since that, so I 
do not know if it is fixed.
