As I pointed our earlier, Alt-D is used in German locales for file menu
activation ("_Datei"). However, the latter is still correctly activated
in these locales due to keybinding signal registration internals.

For those of you who are interested in details: The location bar
keybinding registration is taking place in the NautilusWindow class
initialization, i.e. before the object initialization, where the
relevant menu action is registered and overrides the first registration.
