The only non Trinity app I tested the Alt key was Firefox. but sequential usage of the Alt failed there and in all Trinity apps.

The problem is the recent commits. I reverted to GIT short version 8443 from Oct. 29 and both the menu item highlighting and the Alt key function normally again.

I use the KDE 2 window decoration, KDE Classic widget style, and crystalsvg icon set. I don't use themes.

With the GIT 8462 build set from yesterday I tested other window decorations and widget styles. Only a combined plastik window decoration and widget style allowed menu item highlighting to work.

I did not test the Alt key problem when I was testing the menu item highlighting. I discovered that problem about an hour after, at which point I reverted to my Oct. 29 8443 build because both problems were creating serious usability dysfunction with my habits.
