Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

Description: Ubuntu 8.10
Release: 8.10

  Installed: 2.24.1-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 2.24.1-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 2.24.1-0ubuntu1 0

Gnome terminal has two options with the same hotkey in the edit menu. Both "Paste" and "Profile Preferences" share the letter "P". Previously, one could press "ALT+e" and then "P" to paste, now it is ambiguous and only selects between the two options.

Expected behavior: Paste contents of the clipboard buffer at current cursor position

Actual behavior: Selects either Paste or Profile Preferences
