On Windows 2000 at least, keyboard navigation within menus stops working once you use the mouse to navigate. This happens in "top level" application menus as well as in web form menus. Steps to reproduce: 1) Use the mouse or keyboard to open a menu, e.g., the Tasks menu. 2) Use the up or down arrow keys to move through some menu items. Works fine. 3) Place the mouse cursor on a menu item. Now you are using the mouse to navigate and select menu items (which is correct behavior). 4) Press one of the arrow keys. The selection jumps but then returns to where the mouse cursor is (like the keyboard and mouse are fighting for control of the menu).
