The default shortcut for Speak to Ally on the Mac is Cmd-M rather than Ctrl-M (which is the default on other platforms). Presumably they simply replaced all occurrences of Ctrl- with Cmd- for Mac defaults. However, Cmd-M is already used by the OS as a shortcut for Minimize Window, and this OS shortcut overrides the default Speak to Ally shortcut. It would be nice if this default were changed. (I think it's also possible to disable the OS shortcut just for Wesnoth, but that might surprise some people who use it a lot. Unless it's disabled only if no explicit hotkey conflicts with it or something.)

(For reference, Cmd-Q, Cmd-H, Alt-Cmd-H, Alt-Cmd-T, and basic Edit menu shortcuts of Cmd-X/C/VA would probably also have the same problem.)
