  I would also prefer the current behavior.

I've looked more into details at this issue.
The FLTK code calls cocoa when processing key events so that the system menu bar
get highlighted when a system menu item shortcut is typed, as expected in macOS.
The statement in question is this:
        [[NSApp mainMenu] performKeyEquivalent:[NSApp currentEvent]];
It would be possible to handle system menus completely inside FLTK code, and that would
be equivalent to what happens when using Fl_Menu_Bar rather than Fl_Sys_Menu_Bar.
With that, a shortcut that is also a dead key would not block recognition of the next keystroke.
But, the system menu bar would not be highlighted each time a system menu shortcut is typed.

I believe the current situation is preferable.
Opinions?
