The code already handle alt+space, but a check was added years ago to
prevent "alt up/down" bringing up the system menu on managed windows.
Testing, I think this was trying to avoid on a managed window with no
menu, the alt key alone popping up the system menu (eg the wine about
box on notepad).

This patch allows the alt+space combination to work as expected and
prevents the alt - alone combination as I believe the original patch
