	Fair enough :-) I suspect this was some attempt to have a windows like
behaviour - whereby pressing alt just once would give you keyboard focus
into the menu-bar; and another time - you would get the menu pop-down.
OTOH - no other gtk+ app works like that, so we bin it.

	Don't you love the 'deletion listeners' around the place - instead of
having reference counting on VCL widgets ;-)

	Beautiful, saved time review it; though you missed the
LGPLv3+/MPL message ;-)

	I also cleaned out the (now unused) m_bSingleAltPress.

	Thanks !
