Main Menu at top acting weird

Hi...
   In my app I use a TMainMenu... with the usual "File", "Help", "About" entries. I have the captions for them set as such:

&File
&Help
&About

so that an ALT-F will activate the "File" menu, etc. This has always worked fine for me, except in this app I'm working on. Now when I type *just* an F or an H or an A (without hitting ALT key), it activates those Menu items. I must have some setting turned on or something that I don't realize.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

does the menu have the focus?
(in this case no alt-key must be pressed for navigate)
