Behavior change / Usability bugs

It turns out that a bunch of the bugs on the 2.2.0 milestone fall
into the category of suggested changes to the behavior of GTK+
from the user's perspective.

That is bugs of the form:

 GTK+ should do A, it currently does B.

Where it isn't obvious to me that B is better than A. (Or vice

I'd appreciate input into any of the following bugs (add comments
to the bug) and suggestions about how we can handle such bugs 
in a more deterministic way in the future. (Respond on 

The criteria for making changes include, not only:

 * Is the new behavior abstractly better for users who have
   have never seen an older version of GTK+ or another toolkit.

But also:

 * Is the the new behavior consistent with user's expectations
   for other toolkits.

 * Is the new behavior reasonably consistent with other toolkit's 
   that will be mixed with GTK+, including Mozilla, OpenOffice
   and Qt.

 * Would a change in this area adversly affect applications 
   that were written assuming the old behavior.

Just because we figure out what we want to do for a particular
bug doesn't mean that we'll get that implemented for 2.2.0, but
I'd like to get these bugs out of the "make a decision" category
into either:

 B) Need a patch

[P]  means that there is patch in the bug
[P-] means there is a patch in the bug but it needs work.

53544	KEYNAV: GtkMenu, GtkMenuItem, GtkCheckBoxMenuItem, GtkRadioB [P]
   Patch here is basically about making it unposting submenus while
   the menu has focus if you hit Escape  
58377 	more menu keynav glitches

   Patch is a mix of debatable changes and obviously good fixes for GtkFileSel  
80484 	GtkOptionMenu keynav issues [P-]
   Patch adds Home/End only for optionmenus, which is clearly wrong. Should
