One feature of gnome and gtk apps is to allow the user to easily add extra
accelerators to their apps.  You can do this by opening the menu and
leaving the mouse cursor over the desired menu item and pressing the
desired key combo.  Accelerators can be deleted with the del key.

For gnome apps (and a few non gnome apps such as gimp) accelerators are
remembered between sessions.  To clear the saved accelerators for your
app, delete the file in ~/.gnome/accels corresponding to your app.  See if
this fixes your problem.
