   You seem to be right, but I am baffled about how it could happen.

   I already have a second user account on the system, so I logged out 
and logged into the 2nd account.  The menu hotkeys are correct in the 
2nd account:  ^N for "Open New Window", and ^W for "Close".  It looks 
like there is no bug in the Debian packages.

   Could you tell me what file contains user-specific hotkey settings? 
I would like to run 'diff' to see what else is messed up.

   Since I have never attempted to alter the hotkeys (at the moment, I 
don't even know how to change the ^W back to ^N !), I am dumbfounded 
about how this even happened.
