The code should set the default shortcut. But using QAction::setShortcut you 
set the active shortcut. The code works as in the action can be triggered with 
the shortcut. It fails in providing a default shortcut. If the user ever 
changes the shortcut he cannot reset it with the global shortcutseditor to the 
default value. It could be even weirder in that it is possible to get it back 
after an application restart. I don't care enough to test that.
