Note: I designed the editor so that it would commit changes
immediately and only undo them when you explicitly press the "undo"
button. Of course I wrote the original code under this assumption
everywhere. It may or may not be easy to change or modify that
behavior without breaking something else.

To reproduce the bug I described:
Open system settings, click on Look&Feel/Desktop, then:
Desktop effects, check "enable desktop effects". Under the "all
effects" tab open the settings dialog of any module that has one,
change a shortcut, say to Ctrl-Alt-F10. Close the dialog, open it
again. It displays the old, unchanged shortcut. Set it again to
Ctrl-Alt-F10. Oh, now there's a conflict with itself which is
especially confusing.
This bug may or may not have somehing to do with undo-on-close
actually, it was just recently pointed out to me. Hey, maybe I broke
it with per-component global shortcuts (but the person who told me
about the bug didn't mention it being very new).

Rivo: this code did work at one point, right? Anything to add?

Hope this helps.
