These buttons are defined that way. The Timers key, for instance,
is a "modeless" key that opens the Timers menu, no matter what (if
anything) is currently displayed on the OSD.

I want to be able to press one single button to get out of whatever
is currently on the OSD - and that's the Menu key. Previously, when
I wanted to get rid of the Audio menu, I often found myself pressing
the Menu button, just to be annoyed by the fact that it then actually
openend the main menu.
