Ahah - that's how you pop-up the desktop menu - "xfdesktop -menu". But
you're right, pressing the menu key doesn't work even though the "Window
Manager Settings" dialog accepts it as a legal key. Sigh!
Does anyone have any idea on why the other keys are inoperable even to the
"Window Manager Settings" dialog?
