[Libreoffice-qa] How to report double used and/or not "working as expected" mnemonics?

Hello @ll,
I have (parallel) installed LO Version:
Build ID: 6aa0488da21ef21b9da68253682b174f11f305f5
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64 at 46-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 
2013-10-17_00:51:48 under Debian Testing AMD64. When I opened 
opt/libreofficedev4.2/program/soffice and press <Alt>+<t> to open 
the "Tools" menu, the "Template Manager" opens, as it has the same 
mnemonic (this underlined character in the Start Center, menu bar, 
etc. ... ;) ). Is there a possibility to report this as fast and 
easy as possible? Should I open a new bug for every found one? And 
how should I report ones [like in "File – Wizards – Address Data 
Source...", when you choose "Other external data source", "Next", 
"Settings", change "Data base type" to "MySQL (native)" and try 
<Alt>+<D> in the next dialog to enter the database name]? Though 
this works, if you press <Alt>+<D> a couple of times, I find it a 
little bit disturbing to have to type it more than once ... :( An 
interesting observation in this window is, if you press the keys "O" 
(the letter "O") "M", "J" (and maybe some others well) there, 
without clicking in one of the fields... ;)
Thank you for any help/ideas
