RE: Taking keystrokes from PopUpMenuSelect

Event handlers on control target and the menu don't catch keystrokes.
As far as I can tell, the spacebar sorts of keystroke events are put on
the event, but the raw keydown is pulled off without getting dispatched.
I assume keyboard accessibility routines somewhere are taking these

I could hack around this if there was a way to block the menu from
closing when it thinks it's done.

Why? That would be non-standard behavior.

The next thing I'd try is installing event handler on the control
target, and if that doesn't help - on the popup menu itself.
