Henri, I know you have mentioned a few times that the keyboard handling in the viewer is a 'cluster', to put it mildly. I am not sure if what I am observing is new behavior and/or even just isolated to me. It seems none of the <alt> + <shift> accelerator combos work. I see the menu item 'flash' as if the key combo is recognized but the action does not occur. Specifically, in the View menu, Joystick flycam and Show HUD attachments do not alter state when the combo is invoked. I am not sure what detail you may require but here is my current 'about/version info':

Shitty keyboard handling routines... The Linden(s) who perpetrated such an horror should be executed !

Well, I implemented a total hack for next release... It's inelegant, but it seems to work. The only solution to properly fix this issue would be to rewrite the whole keyboard handling from the ground up, but I don't have time/motivation to do it.

Yeah, I realize that you are dealing with the original infrastructure. I just thought the alt+shift worked 'before' your latest set of accelerator changes and just wanted to point it out. I am glad you take the time to investigate things I find and I'm always appreciative of that. :-)
