GTK+ does fuzzy-group matching for accelerators/mnemonics; 
if you have a ф/a key, as is common for Russian keyboards, if you 
have only a 'ф' or 'a' as a mnemonic, then that Alt-ф/a will activate
the mnemonic in either group.

This is implemented in gtk/gtkkeyhash.c.

If it isn't working for Windows, this probably means that work needs
to be put into the backend function 
gdk_keymap_translate_keyboard_state() and/or
