This feature:
    * no mnemonics are shown when menus are opened with the mouse
is quite UNfortunate and to my way of thinking, inappropriate.

IMHO the way people learn the mnemonics is by seeing them.  It is the
mouse-users that most "need" (should) learn them to increase their
productivity and reduce visits to the doctor for "mouse shoulder".

Just my 2 øre worth....
