 Original issue solved, so closing. I'm adding status of the other points
 raised for whoever is interested.

 Replying to [comment:2 hamish]:
 > feedback and now more wishes:
 >  - could ctrl-q work from when focus is on e.g. the map display too?

 Not implemented, open another ticket if needed.

 >  - alt-r,v: a nice thing!
 >  - (but/yet), how about Alt-F for _File menu, Alt-C for _Config menu
 etc? (difficult due to i18n?) alt-r,v would then have to become ctrl-r,v.

 Ctrl+Shift+R adds raster, so no conflict. Alt+R opens Raster menu in
 English (i18n versions may have different letter; translators need to keep
 `&` in there to make it work).

 >  - this was proposed earlier on the list: in GRASS 5's v.digit there
 used to be keyboard shortcuts for most digitizing tasks. This is probably
 the most important area to have optional keyboard bindings and the most
 productive for a power user -- where there is serious amounts mouse-work
 involved in some repetitive task.

 This would be useful, but a list of those would be needed to get the
 implementation started. Please, open a new ticket if you are interested.

 >  - maybe a keyboard binding for the eyeball display button in the map
 display window. (since forever this has been ctrl-r in web browsers for
 reload, ctrl-shift-r for full no-cache reload)

 Ctrl+R reloads in 7.4.

 >  - Plain +,- for zoom in/out one step in the map display window? Plain
 "p" to switch mouse cursor into pan mode?

 Interesting, not implemented, open another ticket if really need.

 >  - ctrl-c: This has many common meanings already, I would not use it for
 "close workspace". Ctrl-w is often used for that (close tab etc) so I'd
 suggest to use that. Then ctrl-c is free to Copy selection in the Output

 Ctrl+W closes workspace. Alt+C (tr text bound) is associated with Copy and
 Close in module dialogs, so it does not work. Ticket and/or a simple patch
