So if you type `C-h c opt-u' it both says something like "M-u runs the
command upcase-word" and waits for the next keypress? If it does only
the latter, then opt-u is not the usual M-u.

I have a Carbon Emacs with opt as meta. Opt-u upcases a word. It does
not wait for anything. `Opt-u u' would upcase a word and insert u. I
did redefine several keys, with help from this newsgroup, but I don't
remember having to fight opt-u.

Then you may have option as meta and M-u as a prefix key. You do not
have opt-u as upcase-word. Else opt-u opt-u would upcase two words.

You don't seem to get what you bargained for, if simply pressing opt-u
does not insert a character.
