Sounds like a good idea, but...

I spent over a couple of hours, but didn't manage to find the documentation.
That section of the GTK+ reference says how to set a keybinding, but you
need to know how the shortcut in question is named -- and the purported new
name is a piece I failed to find.

However, I found Gnome bugs #548600 and #562834, and they don't even mention
shortcuts being moved -- just removed outright, a change which already has
been reverted in trunk.

I pulled and compiled the trunk, and indeed, the shortcuts are back in the
old place.

So I guess there is some confusion...

But back to Josh's original bug:

It seems that the Alt-1 issue is not connected to his problem after all.
Sorry for unknowingly semi-hijacking this BTS bug.
