Darn. I thought I had that problem fixed. In the short term, try copying Gnucash.app/Contents/Resources/share/gnucash/ui/osx-accel-map to ~/Library/Application Support/Gnucash/accelerator-map. That should fix the no-modifier accelerators; some of them will still be "control" for reasons that elude me at the moment, but at least you'll be able to type in the register.

(You can get to the inside of Gnucash.app by right- (or control-) clicking on it in Finder, then selecting "Show Package Contents" from the resulting context menu. You can option-drag it to the app support folder and rename it there after deleting the old one.)
