Do you mean the gtk-qt-engine package? If yes, I don't know how to "disable" other than to remove the package. I tested that and the sequential use of the Alt key still fails. I don't use themes.

I tested in Firefox, Seamonkey, Opera, and LibreOffice Writer. The sequential use of the Alt key fails on all. Only concurrent Alt+F selects the File menu in non-Trinity apps.

As another test, I reverted to my GIT short version 8443 from Oct. 29-30. Same results. I don't know when the style engine work began. I have some older package sets I could test although removing and installing full package sets takes a while.
