Looks like the sequential Alt key is broken at least all the way back to 3.5.13. At least, that usage won't work for me in my 3.5.13 virtual machine.

Slavek, would you please test All you need do is open a non Trinity app, such as Firefox, and sequentially press Alt then F. The File menu should open.
