For now, it is the right change. In future when accelerators are
supported, they will need to be supported in a cross platform way
anyway, and this bug will still exist, so avoiding fixing this bug now
will not help us later.

Generally accelerators are defined by a character, not position. The
first occurrence of that character gets underlined by the toolkit. But
we need to check all toolkits that Emacs supports to be sure that this
is sufficient information.
