Good. I'm still working on this. There are two problems: One is that I put the map-loading in the wrong place so it gets replaced by the saved map. That part is fixed. The other problem is that some of the accelerators are staying as control-foo instead of command-foo. It seems that in Gtk+-2.20, plugins are able to overwrite the loaded map with their defaults when they are loaded. This didn't seem to be a problem for Gtk+-2.18.
