Depending on currently opened dialogs docked in the main window, or current interface language, likely a duplicate of one of these earlier reports:

I am using US English and I didn't have the Export dialog docked or undocked.

I just tried it in a new document. The first try didn't make a clone but deleting and redrawing a square, I could make clones.

The following dialog boxes are docked-
Undo History (open)
Transform (open)
Align and Distribute
Create Tiled Clones
Fill and Stroke
Layers
Arrange

Undo is always open and the rest open when selected, closing the previous one.

Thanks for the details, Michael!

I just reproduced the issue with the same configuration (Undo and Tranform dialog open), but only when the Matrix tab is selected in the Transform dialog. The Alt+D shortcut then selects the D field instead of cloning.

Suggesting to mark the report duplicate of Bug #1024277 “Clone shortcut hooked by Export dialog when docked” and change the title and description in Bug #1024277 to show that the Export dialog is not the only one to be affected.
