Actually, after testing it some more, the pane toolbar mnemonics do have
some flaws. First of all, the button style must be set to label
with/without icons or the mnemonics won't trigger.

Secondly, when both panels are visible and both panel toolbars have
'show label' set, the shortcuts won't trigger either. The same ambiguity
problem arises, when two buttons on the same pane bar have the same
mnemonic (e.g. two buttons labeled 'Go _Back' and 'Open _Bookmarks').
