serious problem with automatic shortcuts

the KDE libraries now automaticly generate keyboard shortcuts in a tabwidget
and in KMDI and I experience problems with it.
First Quanta relies on the names of the tabs for some functionality and the
added '&' breaks this. Might be not a good coding style, I know, but thats
the situtation right now.
Second I see very strange results in the implementation of KMDI. If I use
Quanta with Icon only for the toolview I see:
- the '&' is inserted when I first open the toolview and is visible in the
tooltip (very ugly)
- the chosen character does change when I switch between different toolviews!
- the only thing I can do with this shortcut is closing the toolview. Even if
the shortcut seems to be assigned from a previous opening it is not possible
to open the toolview.
All this makes this fearture very questionable.
Is it possible to disable this? If not I would suggest to remove it again from
KDE 3.4 and introduce this in KDE 4.0 with an option for the developer to do
