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
http://balsa.gnome.org/faq.html#faq27. Other keys work, just
not Delete. It works in other GTK+ programs (e.g. Rox) but not
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.
