If its a toplevel menu, but not the main menu, I would prefer that the mainmenu will be opened, instead of just closing this menu. ( For only closing a menu I use the BACK key ).

There has been a lot of fuss about "the Menu key doesn't behave consistently"
in the past. Since IMO there is only _one_ way it can behave consistently,
it now opens the main menu if the OSD is empty, and closes whatever is on the
OSD if it isn't.

You'll get used to it... ;-)
