When you enter shortcut field for an action in the keymap panel and start entering a shortcut, there are following
problems with the behavior of the "shortcut completion":
1) the completion blinks very quickly (win Vista) when a functional key is hold.
2) items in the completion can not be chosen using arrow shortcuts (bottom and up arrows work for navigation in the
table, while in the context of this field they should be used for navigation within the completion.
What is your OS please? Works OK for me on MacOS. Thanks.
2) Is reproducible on Linux (Ubuntu) also.
Sorry for a late reply. My OS is win Vista.
http://hg.netbeans.org/main/rev/53a599aec18d should fix the arrow navigation.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200901230201* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

I think that fixing 2. by Max is just enough for this report.
