VB.Net Menustrip access keys working when they shouldn't

P: 1
I have a user interface on many forms with buttons and menu strips. I can create access keys for the buttons by placing an ampersand in the Text property. I have deliberately not created any access keys with the ampersand for the menu strip items. The access keys for the buttons work correctly provided the underlined letter is not the first letter of any of the menu strip items. In that case the menu item is preferentially actioned and not the button. Everywhere I have looked states that the ampersand must be used in the menu item text for it to be actioned by an access key.

What's going wrong?

I'm using Windows7, Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop.
