I can confirm this with buttons as well as menus on 10.3. Oddly
enough, mnemonics DO work on Panther, even though the docs specifically
say that they won't work on Mac OS. This is in standalones as well as
in the IDE, but of course the letter isn't underlined.
I suppose a workaround is to handle the commandKeyDown message with a
series of if-thens for all the different combinations.
Can anyone else confirm this? I can't find it on Bugzilla, but am
about to add it. I find it absolutely necessary for any kind of
production app, so the workaround it is...
