Since the preferences toggle doesn't solve it at all, why do you call it
a solution? Toggling it on does not work, as Sven said, as then mnemonics
and dynamic shortcuts will clash.

The preferences option is more like a hack so people can temporarily
enable it, but that cannot be a solution, just a workaround to limit the

But why do menmonics and dynamic shortcuts clash at all? Either a key is
bound to a menmonic or it is bound to a dynamic shortcut, but never
both. And if I really want to reassign a key used currently by a
mnemonic, it should either work or not work, but assigning it to both
mnemonic and a shortcut doesn'T sound like a "solution" to me.
