Underscore in tomboy note title interpreted as keyboard shortcut in indicator menu

Bug #755222 reported by pablomme on 2011-04-09

tomboy (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

Steps to reproduce:
- Open tomboy and create a note
- Replace the title for "a_b"
- Close the note
- Open the tomboy indicator menu to see that the entry for that note reads "ab" with an underlined b
- Press "b" and the note opens back up

I don't know whether this would have to be fixed in tomboy or on the indicator menu side.

BTW, this was triggered by normal use of tomboy, it's not that I go typing random characters in applications to see what happens :-) I created a set of coding-related to-do notes with file/function names as titles, hence the underscores.

Bug in the appindicator patch, not Tomboy itself. Good catch.

We've also seen this in a Qt application (IPython Qt console - see original bug report here: https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues/1055#issuecomment-2889492 ), on Oneiric.

Does anyone know the correct package to link it to?
