Accelerators with `MOD1 work perfectly with me. You just have to add
~accel_modi:[`MODI] when you build your GMenu.factory.

let factory = new GMenu.factory file_menu ~accel_modi:[`MOD1] ~accel_group

For the problem of the file submenu, I don't know. Apparently you
cannot add accelerator to a menubar, only to real menus, but why?
It doesn't work either with `CONTROL.
