[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#401417: accessibility: terminal preferences dialog requires mouse

Package: xfce4-terminal
Severity: important

In a xfce4-terminal main window, choose Edit > Preferences.  A window
called "Terminal Preferences" appears.  On the left is a list of icons
with the following labels:

    - General
    - Appearance
    - Colors
    - Shortcuts
    - Advanced

These icons act like tabs; when one is selected (by left-clicking with
a mouse), the body of the window changes to display widgets to
configure properties related to that "tab".

Unlike a normal GTK2 tab set, these "icon tabs" cannot (AFAICT) be
selected with the keyboard by pressing the <TAB> key repeatedly or by
holding Alt and pressing a some associated letter or number.

Consequently, users who for accessibility reasons cannot use a mouse
cannot access any of the preferences that are not on the "General"
"icon tab".
