Comment (by rianrietveld):

 Tested 32495.patch, access by keyboard works now for multiple level drop

 Better would be if this was a valid menu structure altogether (like the
 adminmenu), without the div ab-sub-wrapper.
 The behavious is different, you have to press enter to show a submenu.
 Now a keyboard only user has no clue there is a submenu, because the sub
 menu does not open on focus.

 This is a quick bug fix to make the multiple level drop downs work for
 keyboard only, the same as the other menu items, but I think this menu
 whole structure should be in review.
