Should Accelerator Key Precedence Come before Substack Scripts ?

I wanted to intercept Ctrl-V in a substack field and check that it was text
only, so I put a pastekey handler in the card.  However my main stack menu
has a Ctrl-V accelerator shortcut which intercepts the message, and it
doesn't get to the card script.  I can work around it but I was stumped for
a little while.  I think it relates to Bugzilla 'bug'

Is it expected behaviour ?  Seems to be the intent from the comments in
bugzilla but there was a user who begged to differ ! Btw, to test you need
to suspend development tools.
