Indeed, there can be cases where a single CJK character is enclosed inside
parenthesis, and that's not uncommon; although when enclosed
character is a latin character it mostly means mnemonic key.

Well, it is preferred, since multiple keystrokes are needed to input
non-latin characters, and I doubt if anything like Alt-<char> can
be entered at all. Hope anybody can enlighten me if this is
possible or not.

Ok,  GTK+ 2.10 will strip out a suffix of the form "(_<single character>)" in
addition to underlines, when displaying labels in toolbars. Please let me know if you
notice any problems due to this.
