Shortcuts broken

The keuboard shortcuts set in the Shortcuts preference seem to be broken in hrev49939. A existing shortcut using right-ALT-/ does not work. I created another shortcut to bring up a terminal, and it did not work either.

What's your system locale? Maybe it's the same as #7505?

Replying to diver:

English, but yes, I imagine there is a link somewhere. I tried out my other installation once it was updated to the same hrev. Same locale, one works the other doesn't.

michel, if you are still around, I have done some testing and for my machine the problem with Left-Alt was that I was using the US-International keymap (which I think is the Haiku default), and in that keymap left alt is shown as Opt, and therefore it won't trigger a Left-Alt shortcut. In addition even if I configured the shortcut to use Left-Option it still did not work for that keymap. Switching to the US keymap made Left-Alt work as intended for the shortcut.

So I do not think this is a Shortcuts bug. Though Shortcuts definitely needs work either way.
