That one is a bug. The keycode com::sun::star::awt::Key::REPEAT is
assigned to that menu entry... and it ends up being translated with the
Sun keyboard key (see that file [0]).

That brings several questions to me: how comes the translation of the
key names is depending on the keyboard model? I have a normal french
keyboard with en-US locale and en-US libreoffice build.
