Put another way, it seems that, after having defined the orca+F12
shortcut, when defining the orca+F12+F12 shortcut, the orca+F12 part
gets eaten by the orca+F12 shortcut defined just before. While defining
the orca+F12+F12 shortcut first, and then orca+F12 doesn't have the
issue of course.

So a solution would be that previously-define shortcuts should be
disabled when defining a new one.

Jean-Philippe, maybe you should rather forward this issue directly
upstream, it's not specific to Debian. Make sure to integrate my
comments too.
