Thank you: it was the FrontEnd`NotebookWrite... expression and the After that I didn't know about. You say not to create any other .tr files in the same directory. But without any apparent ill effects I kept there, with the name OriginalKeyEventTranslations.tr, a copy of the original KeyEventTranslations.tr (and likewise for MenuSetup.tr, which I had also modified by adding something). Perhaps Mathematica is reading all these files but with no ill effect since the modified versions only add commands?
