Ticket #8587 (closed enhancement: fixed)
default setup makes it very easy to cause an acciental reboot with a single keystroke

In the default setup, pressing <rctrl>-R causes an immedate reboot.
Because most typists use the opposite hand for control and shift keys as the character they are typing, this is also a standard keystroke combination for refreshing a webpage in several browsers, and replying to the current message in Thunderbird.
At the very least, there should be an option to have a warning dialog when this command is issued from the keyboard. This has been discussed here:
- Status changed from new to closed
- Resolution set to invalid
- Status changed from closed to reopened
- Resolution invalid deleted
