It looks like now (after recent update) Windows XP has the same problem. All the time, not just occasionally.
A few days ago, I re-installed Window XP Pro on my work computer. (Actually, the whole hard disk was wiped clean and a new image installed.)
After installing Vedit (the latest version), I noticed that the Alt-key combinations do not work anymore.
For example, if I press Alt-F, the File menu does not open. Instead, a capital F is inserted at cursor location and then Vedit window turns inactive.
When I click on Vedit window to activate it, a block is highlighted at that location (as what double-click normally does).
In fact, the problem seems to be that it is not possible to open a menu using keyboard shortcuts.
For example, if F12 is configured to perform "Tools" -> "C Function select", it does not work.
Instead, capital F is inserted in the buffer and Vedit window becomes inactive.
When I click on Vedit window to activate it, capital U is inserted at the clicked position.
Similarly, if I press Shift-F5 (Tools -> Compile), capital C is inserted in edit buffer and Vedit window becomes inactive.
When I click on Vedit window to activate it, capital T is inserted at the clicked position.
Some key combinations do work, however. For example key combination Shift-F2 (Search -> Search block/word) works.
These problems make Vedit quite un-usable on my work computer.
