Doesn't work for me because Alt-X is bound to a KDE command, that's
the reason I tried the menu.  It seems that Esc-X works, though, but

...this doesn't work either.  After pressing Esc-X, I'm in the last
line of the emacs window.  The line just has a "M-x" prompt.  When
I enter "grep" and then press the space key, I get "[no match]". I'm
completely unable to enter a useful command at this point.
