Well, that was what I gathered from the commits and source code, when it
was broken some time ago and fixed by Albert. There's a comment in the code
that activates the auto-assignment that suggests it wasn't meant to be used
during runtime, but during development to find good accelerators.

Can't find the commits easily at the moment and neither remember the code
file where the comment was.
