Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity. -- Charles Mingus

Java, Menus etc;

I'm not sure if this counts as a resolution to the mystery of keyboard accelerators on the Mac screen menu bar or not,but upgrading to the Java 1.7 update 79 virtual machine resolves this problem. Not that that JVM fixes the accelerator problem completely - we still need the addNotify() trick to get the accelerators installed, but they are reliably installed in all cases so that's an improvement.
