Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

using the current unity in maverick the appmenu rendering doesn't handle accelerators correctly, when a non working software is running the deault menus have their accelerators displayed as "_" (ie "_Edit" rather than "Edit" with an underline char), the same items are displayed correctly in the applet in GNOME...
