The so called "accelerators" are not yet implemented.
I did prepare a French translation of the system which includes them.
I also have an English translation file with the accelerators, but both 
files are for a newer version (I use 649)

I am just waiting for a decision from Jonathan (and instructions) to 
create the accelerators in the .ui files or ...

Unfortunately, for the next four weeks I'll be out to Africa and will 
not be able to do much (at least I think so); I am not even sure I'll be 
able to read my normal mails.
