menues and keys

i wonder if it is legal with tk, motif, windows or whatever to have
similar accelerator keys for a pull down menu and a menubutton for
another pulldown-menu.

Unter STk-3.0b when i type a hot key (say Meta-a) then not only the item
of the current menu is invoked (say ArcNumbers, with first character
underscored), but also the About menu-button on the left (also with A
underscored is activated). Is this a bug or a feature?

Wenn i change the the invoked function (ArcNumbers) to return 'break i
get a tk-Background error ....

It is really difficult to find a lot of different keys ...
