Fix Focus on Menu lock up after switching Spaces
Authored by: arcticmac on Jan 28, '11 08:39:25AM

can't seem to replicate that behavior here. Some notes about my setup:
* "auto switch" spaces is turned off.
* use cmd-fkey to switch spaces
* use ctrl-f2 to focus menubar

I wonder if you might be having trouble because the default thing that ctrl-f1 does is to toggle the other ctrl-fn shortcuts for the menubar, the dock, etc. This used to be explicit someplace in system prefs, but I couldn't find it this morning. In any case it seems like it could cause some odd issues.

Fix Focus on Menu lock up after switching Spaces

Haven't tested the fix, but I'll share my own for when Spaces locks up: choose Login Window from the Fast User Switching menu, then log in again. Annoying, but it always solves this problem.
