This may seem like a small thing, but I use the shortcut key to edit files in vim 30-50 times a day and now the quick key sequence I've used for years doesn't work without my first checking that I have selected the correct menu item and then pressing ENTER. Formerly, I would press the Menu key (beside the Alt key on the right side of my keyboard) and then the 'v' key in quick succession after having selected the right file(s). In that way I could fire up VIM on the file(s) in less than 1/2 a second (yes, I am a power user).
Rationale why it is a bug not a feature: the implementation reduced existing functionality I depend upon.
Would it be possible to:
FYI, it looks like a Windows feature outside your control, but the little underline beneath each shortcut key only shows up when you use the menu button, not when you right-click with the mouse. The shortcut action works either way, but you only see the underline with the menu button.

Thanks also for such a great product -- it's a huge time saver for us and made adoption of subversion by the command line haters here much easier. We really appreciate all the time you folks put into it.
