U10f219 looks like edit/menu doesn't work as before

I have a (semi-hidden) form
where I simulate keystrokes using the macro statement

$prompt = CODE_BUFFER.<$entname>
macro “^SELECT^TEXT^SAVE” ; saves text in clipboard, only in UNIFIELD

at the end of the EXEC,
I enter dialog mode with edit/menu
where the menu trigger consists on a simple

trigger menu
macro “^ACCEPT”


IIRC, this worked pretty well even under 10.2 (created it early last year),
but it looks like one of the recent patches causes some strange behaviour:

After this edit/menu, the form is visible now,
but as soon as I enter for example the GOLD key (only this one, perhaps some other keys as well),
I see in the debugger that the macro inside the menu trigger is executed and the form is left.


P.S. if you need a minimalistic testform for reproduction, send me an email, Uli
