I've asked this on the list before, but it's hard to imagine that no
one else has noticed this, so I must be doing something wrong.

I'm trying to add accelerators (such as CTRL-O, etc) to my MenuItems.
On the Common tab for the GtkImageMenuItem, I hook the accelerator I
want to the activate signal.

Is this not the way I should be doing it?  Some of them work, but  
don't, and I can't figure why.

I'm using glade 3.6.3 and saving my projects in Builder format.

Gah, This is my mistake.

This needs to be fixed in GTK+, GtkMenuItem doesnt use an accel-group
property to connect to the window's accel-group, right now the  
is only handled by GtkImageMenuItem but it should be handled by
menu items in general.

This makes some sense, although I have 3 GtkImageMenuItem widgets that  
also don't respond to accelerators -- CTRL++, CTRL+-, and CTRL+0.

But... come to think of it.. do these only work via the numeric  
keypad?  I don't have a numeric keypad on any of the three keyboards I  
have here at the house.  I'll try at the office when I get in today.
