Bug Description

Binary package hint: shotwell

If "Editable menu shortcut keys" is enabled in Gnome, Shotwell allows a custom key binding to be assigned to a menu item, but the setting will be lost after program restart.

How to reproduce:
1. Make sure /desktop/gnome/interface/can_change_accels setting is on.
2. Start Shotwell.
3. Click a submenu and hover mouse cursor over an item so it is highlighted, eg. Edit -> Remove from Library.
4. Press a custom key combination, eg. Shift+Del. The shortcut is displayed on the right.
5. Exit Shotwell and start it again. The assigned shortcut is gone.

By the way, having a default shortcut Shift+Del for Remove from Library, as it is implemented in F-Spot, would be very convenient anyway.

I've ticketed this on our end:

I've also ticketed your Shift+Delete suggestion (although I'm not associating that ticket with this one): If you want to ticket it here on Launchpad, it probably should be file separately.
