Hello,

I have successfully created a toolbar object in a window
with actions connected to each toolitem. I used UIManager 
to accomplish this.

However, my accelerators do not work. I've looked at the
tutorials, read the documentations and all. And I still can't
figure out why it is not working.

Your help is appreciated. The code follows.
