modify gkt_widget_real_can_activate_accel to fix nautilus desktop?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to fix this bug in Nautilus:

I think I've tracked the problem down to this function in gtkwidget.c:
static gboolean
gtk_widget_real_can_activate_accel (GtkWidget *widget,
                                    guint      signal_id)
  /* widgets must be onscreen for accels to take effect */
(widget) && gdk_window_is_viewable (widget->window);

In the case of invoking an accelerator on the desktop, the 'widget'
argument will contain the desktop's hidden GtkMenuBar.

The function returns FALSE when someone tries to use an accelerator
such as ctrl-L on the desktop. I've found that if I comment out
GTK_WIDGET_DRAWABLE(widget) && gdk_window_is_viewable(widget->window),
then the function will correctly return TRUE and accelerators will
work on the desktop. I'm guessing, however, that this change would
probably be a big "no no" because it could break functionality in
other programs?

Any advice? Should I instead be focusing on making changes in nautilus
rather than gtk?

Thanks for any help.
