Well I was assuming that since they are already in the keybinding menu
they are looked up from somewhere and that would just stay the same

Interestingly I just realised that my test program is using its own
accel group to remove the standard accelerator, but it works!!!
Probably should get the global accel group though.
Who knows, maybe they just better be taken out the keybinding menu and
forbidden.  sigh :-S

Comments in the GTK+ bug list seem to show that the developers of GTK
are somewhat unhappy with the mess of the accel code and associated
bugs, erm undocumented features.  I guess these are some of them ;-)
