Summary0001615: Deleted keyboard actions are being restored upon launch

Deleted keyboard actions are being restored upon launch.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Go to View > Setup > Keyboard
  2. Select an action and click "Delete" in "Key setup for selected commands"
  3. Restart OpenMPT
  4. Go to back to View > Setup > Keyboard
  5. Check the "Key:" field for the same action.

Issue: the key field is filled again as if it was never deleted.

Additional Information

Key changes are kept, only delete has this issue.

Tested on both the installer version and the portable version.

I often accidentally hit the CTRL + W shortcut (File/Close) when transposing notes (CTRL+Q) and wanted to unset this shortcut to prevent accidental lost of progress.

TagsNo tags attached.
Has the bug occurred in previous versions?
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

Yes, OpenMPT by default restores all default key bindings, as that is currently the only way new default key bindings can be added to existing keymaps (so that long-term users can still automatically use of newly added features). To work around that, you have to assign the deleted shortcut (in this case Ctrl+W) to the global "Dummy Shortcut". If you do that, no default shortcuts using Ctrl+W are added back automatically anymore, and the Dummy Shortcut itself does nothing.

This is not optimal and will improve the in the future hopefully.

Did not know about this, thank you. This is good enough for my needs.
