Raise priority of application (XBindKeys) above Apps menu

Using: Ubuntu 8.10 (with GNOME)

I am running XBindKeys, which allows me to setup my own keyboard shortcuts.

PROBLEM: XBindKeys behaves as expected except when I select the 'Applications' menu and the drop-down list is shown. Then XBindKeys shortcuts don't work.

How can I make it work even when a menu is selected? Is XBindKeys being blocked/overridden somehow?

I think it's running as a high priority process so I'm assuming a change there won't make any difference.



gnome, priority, ubuntu, xbindkeys
