After having changed the key binding for run-module to C-r it still says
F5 in the menu and in the general section of configuration.
Check Module has the same behaviour.
Seen with Debian Lenny's IDLE 1.2.2 on Python 2.5.2 and with IDLE 3.1b1
on Python 3.1b1.

At least for Run in the main menu the changed shortcut shows up after a
restart of IDLE. Nevertheless in the Options dialog the string "F5"
seems to be hard coded.

I will try to look at this sometime when I get to IDLE issues.

This only applies to menu items from extensions (in this case, Other events (Copy, Cut, Paste, etc) update the menu shortcut properly.

IDLE handles bindings for extensions separately from built-in functions. As a consequence, bindings for extensions do not get saved with custom key maps in ~/.idlerc/config-keys.cfg, but instead in ~/.idlerc/config-extensions.cfg.
