^W should not close conversation tabs with the Emacs Gtk key theme
Submitted by Will Thompson
I have /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme set to Emacs, so that Ctrl-U deletes to the start of the line, Ctrl-K deletes to the end of the line, etc., just like at the shell and in irssi. But, Empathy intercepts Ctrl-W, which should mean "delete one word to the left of the cursor", in conversation windows and closes the window. This turns out to be really annoying when I'm talking in a MUC and keep parting and joining when I forget that ^W doesn't work properly.
This seems to be a problem in quite a few Gtk applications. Maybe the toolkit should be figuring this out for us. I'm not sure.
(I could work around this if Empathy's menu accelerators were modifiable, but they aren't.)
