I have recently installed debian 8 with xfce 4.10, and I am annoyed by the following:
Menus (like e.g. the one that pops up if I press ctrl-esc) overrides the access to short cuts.
Normally I have that the short cut ctrl-alt-t opens a terminal, but if I press ctrl-esc and then this sequence when the menu is still open then nothing happens.
Other menus that block the short cuts are the roll-down menus from the panels, and even sometimes when parts of the panel is in focus.
Question: Is there a way to force short cut keys to always work?
