I don't understand this problem.

In my system, ALT E followed by a letter seems to select an entry whose
first character is that letter:
Paste, Paste as, and Preferences.
This may not be the best way to choose an action, so I guess it's
useless. But what are you trying to accomplish with ALT e p

When I execute
I get a new image with the selection that was on the clipboard.
There seems to be no need to index through the various submenus to get
there. The keyboard mnemonic is unique.

In my installation, SHIFT+CTRL+V creates a new image with the clipboard
contents, as expected.
Not sure how you are getting there from the discussion above.
