I can not follow you (Jakub, Sven and Dave) in this way.

Dinamyc shortcuts are useful to reassign defaults schortcuts but they are interresting
if you use them really dynamically, I mean assigned them immediatly at the moment you
need a shortcut. So I'll leave dynamic shortcuts enabled. 

You said that there is an interference with mnemonics but if you turn off the "save
shortcuts at the end of the session" it's not important because defaults will be
restored for the next session. ( And I don't think that many users really use 
The main use of mnemonics is probably when you use the tablet instead of the mouse )

Furthermore it seems that with gimp 1.3.17 it's no more possible to reassign 
the shortcuts to a mnemonics, I tried but it only gives me a BUZZ (wrong) bell. As I 
it was possible in Gimp 1.3.16 but I won't reinstall it to check.
