ToolStripMenuItem Activate property issue

First of all, I'd like to say that it's not easy to figure out the behavior
of ToolStripMenuItem Visible property.

I have replaced my Windows Forms 1.1 MainMenus with the new MainMenuStrip
when I've converted my application to .Net 2.0.

Even after changing the Visible property usage to Activate I still have a
layout problem.

Just a simple example:

Create a Windows Forms application
Add a Form
Add a MenuStrip
Create the following menu
If I set “Open” ToolStripMenuItem.Activate = false I’ll have a problem
running my application.

I run the application and if I navigate over the Close and Exit items with
keyborard arrows the menu is not well displayed.

Could anyone give me some advice on this issue?
If you need I can send you a sample application or even a little movie.
