The shortcuts should definitely be shown while using the mouse. Who came 
up with this idea? I know this isn't the GTK+ mailing list, but 
seriously, how is this an improvement? Were the drop down menus getting 
too wide with the included shortcuts? Were they interfering with 
legibility? Why are they trying to fix problems that don't exist?

What percentage of users navigate the menus via keyboard? To me 
beginners use the mouse to navigate the menus. Experts use keyboard 
shortcuts. People that are unable to use the mouse use the keyboard to 
navigate the menus until they learn the shortcuts. It is very awkward 
for me to learn the keyboard shortcuts if they aren't visible during 
mouse navigation. I never use the keyboard to navigate the menus.

Just my two cents.
