This has come up before and its not user error. It's a bug in the HW/OS. I frequently get the app switcher even with a light push.
More worrying was that last week my menu key stopped working all together. Luckily the right convenience key acts (sometimes) as it when lightly pressed. Anyway I assumed the HW was faulty.
Today, I brought up the email setting program and *bang* the menu button started working properly again. I really don't have the feeling it was a stuck key/bit of dirt etc. I really have the gut feeling it was some sort of issue with SW getting itself stuck.
Still, working now (albeit still with the issues of sometimes bringing up the app switcher instead of the context menu).
