Child menu stability

I've been running Linux for a long time, using window managers FVWM,
FVWM2, and now AfterStep.  I've played around a bit with Gnome, both
with Enlightenment and with AfterStep.  I've gone back to plain old AS
without Gnome.

I have a problem with Gnome's menus.  The most irritating behavior is
that, when going to a child menu, you must precisely trace your way from
the parent menu item to the child menu or you will wind up on some other
child menu.  It's a very Windoze-ish behavior.  In AfterStep (and
Netscape, and FVWM*), if you click on the parent menu item the child
menu stays posted regardless of where the cursor goes.  Is there any way
to configure Gnome to behave that way?
