I think I explained that the only problem is that you will most likely
rebind your keybindings accidentally if you use mnemonics while
Dynamic Keyboard Shortcuts are enabled.

You misunderstood me and it would certainly have helped if you had
simply started 1.3, enabled Dynamic Keyboard Shortcuts and tried to
use mnemonics to navigate the menus. I have the impression you didn't
do that or you would have discovered what I was talking about.

It's not that we did this change without a lot of thought and
discussion. We even had the dynamic keybindings enabled for quite some
time although GTK2 disables it by default. It just turned out that it
is too dangerous to have it enabled all the time.
