Yes. But using console applications that make use of key sequences
like Alt+o, you often unintentionally press just Alt and end up in the
menu (at least I do). That was what the original poster was refering
to, IMHO.

There already is a different key combination for activating the menu
bar (Alt+Ctrl+M). So all what would have to be done is making "Alt
activates menu" configurable.

> However, changing ALT not to open the menu is not possible.  

Why? Also this is a wishlist bug, so even if there are some technical
problems the bug should still be valid.

Please reopen.
