I tested in 3.5.10 and pressing the Alt key, releasing, pressing the F key does not work. So this bug has been around a long time.

Is this a bug? I tested directly in Xfce and sequential pressing of the keys does not work there. I'm starting to think this is a GTK problem, although Opera (Qt4) behaves the same way. Perhaps sequential key presses is supported only in Trinity apps?

Where does one start looking to debug this?
