oVirt gerrit 27033 master MERGED frontend: "escape" underscores in spice menu Never

Description David Jaša 2013-05-15 15:50:18 UTC
Description of problem:
if an underscore in menu label is encountered, gtk (and AFAIK other GUI toolkits, too) don't display the underscore and convert following character to hotkey that can be triggered with alt+<the_character_following_undersore>.

Given that file names of isos in Change CD dialog can contain virtually any characters and underscores are pretty common, the menu gets somewhat cluttered and not-exactly-well readable.

The underscores can be escaped by doubling them.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to a RHEV-M VM using user portal and browser plugin
2. display CD list in Spice --> Change CD menu
Actual results:
underscores are eaten and characters after them become a hotkey, e.g.:
with first dot and "7" characters underlined

Expected results:
The iso file name is unchanged
