The problem isn't the defaults but rather that I *can't* change it later. I'm simply highlighting the menu entry 'Move to trash' and pressing the Delete key as per Other keys work, just not Delete. It works in other GTK+ programs (e.g. Rox) but not in Balsa.

The issue is that Delete is added as an alternate key-binding for `toggle deleted' (using gtk_widget_add_accelerator), and that seems to remove it from the pool of keys that are available for reassignment. Ctrl+= is added as an alternate to Ctrl++ for `zoom in' in the same way. Gtk appears not to support multiple key-bindings in a way that is consistent with reassignment.

Perhaps Balsa should not grab keys in that way. D = `move to trash' and Ctrl+D = `toggle deleted' are Balsa's long established bindings. We could remove Delete as an alternate, and let each user assign it by choice.
