What's going on?
How about a delayed Western Cue: say a long-minor type hand too strong to overcall on the first round, now wanting to fish for a stopper for 3NT? To throw this undiscussed would be courageous.
Expert Defenses to Two-Suited Overcalls

Opponent's system is a standard-ish base?
When two cue bids are available
There is no general rule for all sequences. On (1x)-p-(1y)- sequences such as the one you gave, it is very common to play both 2x and 2y as natural. When you are "deeper" in the auction, it is - I believe - most common for cuebids in opponents' suits to ...
