From gtkaccount.c:
  tmp = g_strconcat("_", purple_account_option_get_text(option), NULL);
  opt_entry->widget = check = gtk_check_button_new_with_mnemonic(tmp);

This strikes me as totally wrong (although if it's possible to 'tab'
between entries with the same mnemonic, I guess it's less wrong).  Added
in 90c2a6492b85a718acbed863733e736cea512906.
