what the headline says :) press and hold eg ALT-8 and a LOT of file dialogs will open, eventually rendering the whole machine unresponsive.

perhaps those accelerator keys are missing some kind of "trigger only once per keypress" flag?

    I'll look into it. I somehow have in mind, that this was already reported... couldn't find a ticket quickly.
    Which version of GTK are you using?
    e.g.:
    pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0
    2.24.10

    it happened at a friends place as well, who is using recent ubuntu (but no idea what gtk version they use)

    `recent ubuntu' sound definitly new enough - mine is Ubuntu 12.04 (pretty ancient). As soon as I get my build through, I'll check...
