Java gives focus to the menu title, not the first item. (BTW jdk1.4beta2 seems 
to have a bug in menubar navigation :-( )

Well, there are other ways to get this information from the menu bar, via 
at-spi.  However I agree that you don't want focus to always be on a menu item 
with the menu is popped down.

(A situation where this would be troublesome would be if all the menu items 
had rollovers, then right-arrow couldn't be used to move to the next menubar
