Is there a small problem with AWT Menus with pMEA PP WM6 ?

Hi all,
I'm having a small problem with an AWT application using phoneME Advanced Personal Profile for Windows Mobile 6 and was wondering if anyone came across it before. All works fine, but when I click on the 11th MenuItem, it doesn't execute my application code, but brings up a popup menu with "Appointment, Contact, Message, Note and Task" in it. I can select any of these and it brings up the relevant Windows Mobile application. No good for my application though (although some would describe it as a feature). Subsequent MenuItems are fine, i.e. the 12th, 13th etc.

I rearranged the menus, but the 11th one always displays this popup, so it's not a hidden escape character in my code. Anyway, I placed a dummy 11th MenuItem into my application just to have my stuff working so there's no panic on this one.

I noticed at that there was a known bug wrt AWT menus, and this was fixed. The example shown (bug 14) though has 10 menuitems, so possibly there's another one lurking.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone came across it before.
Thanks, John.

I have noticed a similar problem too. I am not sure, but I think the window message of the
11th MenuItem is (by accident) mapped onto an existing one that triggers the popup menu.
I will look into it.
