I'm sure you all know of a bug that when you use Keyboard shortcut for desktop menu, which launches xfdesktop -menu, the menu doesn't appear.
I played with this for a while, unfortunately I don't have time to look at the code. I tried to assign xterm -e 'xfdesktop -menu' to Alt+F2 shortcut, and it worked as it should: it opened a terminal window for a short while, then poped desktop menu and closed terminal window. Then I got the idea, that probably it's in the window, that terminal opens before the menu shows up. I tried to make a script called xfmenu, which called 'xmessage Hello &' and then immediately 'xfdesktop -menu' and all worked like it should, xmessage showed it's window, then desktop menu poped up.
I only wnated to give you a hint in case you didn't find out already. I believe now that if any window is opened betweeen the key press and calling xfdesktop -menu, it works. I hope I helped you locate the bug.
