[Gtk-sharp-list] Adding a shortcut to menu or a button

I've put together a very basic sample that tries to use accelerators.
Clicking on the menu item's call the methods appropriately, but the
accelerators don't work. I used AccelMap.AddEntry() to map the
accelerators to paths, then told the menu items what their accelerator
paths were. Is more needed? I still can't figure out how to use
AccelGroup, as I don't know how to make an IntPtr closure (notice the
??? in the accelGroup.Connect() calls). The documentation for
AccelGroup says to use ItemFactory, but the documentation for
ItemFactory has "Obselete" and "Do not use" in it.

The sample code is attached. Help on this would be great, it doesn't
seem like it should be this complicated.
