Someone already concluded that and fixed the menus.
The toolbar never got the matching fix (before this patch).
The keyboard shortcuts ALSO need a matching patch.

There may be more such bugs lurking! Bold/Italic/Underline have a similar
mismatch, and I'll bet there are more as yet undiscovered by users.

Of course, it's fun tourturing AbiWord by executing ghosted commands using keyboard
shortcuts, so maybe that's a feature :-).
