I changed my mind about this patch. I think, the keyname translation table should completely be deleted from the code (for code simplification) as suggested in bug LP:700742.

For this reason I canged the status and removed the milestone for this bug.

This is a bug, and is succinctlydescribed. "+" and "-" don't work in keyboard shortcuts.

The other suggesion, LP:700742 does not explicity duplicate this report, and whilst application of that patch would cause this bug to be fixed / invalid, until that patch is applied, this bug remains valid.

Please see my comments on the other bug, as to why I think it is not necessarily a good approach.

I have changed my mind again. Since the lesstif-GUI supports those keys as shortcuts, it is a bug, that the GTK-gui does not support them. So, if no more complains, please apply this patch.
