Doc Text:
.Hotkeys in Motif applications activate the correct item Previously, menu hotkeys activated the wrong menu item in applications using the Motif toolkit. When a submenu was open and you pressed a hotkey associated with its item, the application activated an item in the parent menu instead. With this update, the problem has been fixed, and hotkeys now activate the correct submenu items.
