GIMP 2.8 Keyboard shortcuts failure

All GIMP keyboard shortcuts suddenly stopped working. I am unable to turn them back on. Shortcuts work fine in all other applications.

I am running GIMP 2.8.22 on Ubuntu 18.04. Everything is vanilla.

This has happened twice now. Both times, shortcuts worked perfectly fine, for weeks, then suddenly toggled off. I dug through the menus looking for a toggle, tried the option to reset shortcuts, but that didn't fix it. I uninstalled and reinstalled the software, and that didn't help either. I finally cleared it by reloading Ubuntu from scratch and installing. That bought me about a week of functionality, and now shortcuts are dead again.

Please help.

The shortcuts are held in the file ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/menurc

with entries like

; (gtk_accel_path "/dialogs/dialogs-brushes" "b")

; (gtk_accel_path "/gradients/gradients-edit" "")

; (gtk_accel_path "/tools/tools-by-color-select" "o")

; (gtk_accel_path "/tools/tools-vector" "b")

Do you have that file with similar entries? Try renaming it to disable it, start Gimp up and see if a new default is created.
