Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gedit-plugins

Summary: In the gedit plugin "External Tools", when an accelerator is
modified, the change doesn't affect everything it should until a restart
is done.

Steps to reproduce: Start gedit, activate the "External Tools" plugin if
it isn't already activated (in preferences->plugins). Then in the
External Tools manager (tools->external tools) create a new tool (or
modify an existing one). For example, a tool that does "ls". Now, change
the accelerator to control-3. Exit the external tools manager window.
Now, manage the external tools again, this time change the accelerator
to control-4. Exit again. At this stage, when you view "tools" on the
menubar, you will see the old accelerator for "ls", control-3. Control-3
is also the one that actually works. But when you enter the external
tools manager (tools->external tools), you will see control-4, which is
what you last entered (and what you want to appear in the tools menubar,
and to work). Closing and restarting gedit will make everything work
fine, i.e. control-4 will appear everywhere, and also work.
