Access key (or menu access key), if you use the terminology from the

This probably has something to do with GTK+ assuming the same position
of the E key. I suggest reporting this as a bug against GTK+.

Access key (maybe menu item access key)

Bug report :)

Hmm, bug report this too, and ask GTK+ developers. This probably needs
to be sorted out and properly fixed in GTK+.
