Build 2000011211M13: NT4 Build 2000011212M13: Linux 6.0 Overview: Use any of the mnemonics in a Composer message and the action is performed but it also places the character in the message. Steps to reproduce: 1. In the 3-pane select the New Message button. 2. Click on the View menu 3. Type "t" to access the Toolbar item. Notice that a "t" appears in the message. 4. Type "m" to "Show Message Toolbar". Notice that a "m" appears in the message. Actual Results: Everytime a mnemonic is selected then the correct action occurs but it also places the letter typed into the Address, Subject or body of the message depending on where the cursor is active. This problem makes it difficult to check the mnemonics under the Format menu! If a word is highlighted and I use a mnemonic to change its attribute, such as bold, then the word highlighted is deleted and is replaced with the letter "b". Data loss. Expected Results: Using a mnemonic should just perform the action, not type extra characters.

It's a generic problem with menu, nothing to do in particular with message compose. Reassign to trudelle

Oh Hyatt... this smells like the switch over to a bubbler instead of capturer for the keyboard accelerators.

Disabling Composer menu items that are not working is covered with Bug# 25137. If this problem is unlikely to be fixed for beta1 then a workaround is to disable the mnemonics. Is this what should be recommended in bug# 25137?
Fix checked in. Mnemonics should now eat an event so thoroughly that not even God can see it.
Build 2000-02-14-16M14: NT4 Verified Fixed. Great! Note: Since mnemonics have been removed on Linux for Beta1, this is not an issue on Linux.
