I've found quite often that going through the menus instead of picking an icon made picks match up. Not always, but most of the time.

I usually create my mapkeys using the record button and it works great most of the time. However, every once in a while it doesn't work and it seems a little quirky. Things like the mapkey recording won't activate a window or a menu in a pop up window. I even had one mapkey that drove me crazy. It involved selecting an icon in the menu bar. If I just selected the icon without a mapkey it took me to a prompt to that I wanted. If I ran the mapkey that involved selecting the same icon, I got a different prompt. I tried several times to recreate it but always with the same results. Finally I just gave up.
