Weird keyboard shortcut bug with whiskermenu
I wanted to make whiskermenu open and close with a keyboard shortcut so I set a shortcut on "Application Shortcuts" for my key combination (doesn't matter which one) to run "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu". When the menu is closed it works just fine (menu opens). But when the menu is open, when I click that key combination, it closes for a second and then it re-opens. So what's happening here is the moment I click the combination (before letting go of the buttons) the menu closes instantly and then (after I let go of the buttons) the command gets executed (which takes a good second on my slow laptop) and the menu is open again. The menu is closing only with the combination that is set to run "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu" each time, so a different combination can't close the menu.
Also I did a little test. I made a little script to run "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu", wait 5 seconds and then run "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu" again. And that worked just fine (menu opened and then closed).
Finally, I found this forum thread from 2 days ago explaining the exact same problem so it seems I'm not the only one experiencing this https://forum.manjaro.org/t/whisker-menu-not-closing-correctly/84558
I'm not sure if this is related to whiskermenu or xfce4-panel but I decided to post it here first.
I'm running Arch with Xfce 4.16 and whiskermenu 2.6.0
