Alt T in the Main Menu area generates report,
instead of showing Tools pull down.

When I hit Alt-T, it works like you think it should. Is it possible
that you accidently defined a keyboard shortcut of Alt-T to the
Account Summary report? If you did, to get rid of it, press the
delete key while the menu item is highlighted. From the tutorial
GnuCash, as a Gnome application, also allows you to define your own menu
shortcuts. To define a shortcut, click on the menu header and move the
mouse pointer over the menu item. While the menu item is highlighted,
press a key or key combination to set the shortcut. You should now see
your shortcut choice next to the item in the menu. To delete a shortcut,
press the Delete key while the menu item is highlighted.
When I tried re-assigning Alt-T to generate a report instead, hitting
Alt-T generated the report. After I deleted that shortcut, Alt-T
did nothing until I exited gnucash and restarted. After that, it worked
as expected again. That's probably a bug, but so minor I'm not sure
it's even worth filing.
