Bug Description

(Hoary)

1) Go to System > Preferences > Keyboard shortcuts
2) With a "Windows" K/B, I tried defining "Win + E" to open my home folder. But
it only catches the "Win" key, not the second key. Then if triyng to create
another shortcut with the Win key again (say Win + F), it says that the shortcut
is already used...
3) Tried to remove the shortcuts. At the bottom of the dialog it says that
entering "space" will delete a shortcut. That doesn't work. It uses the space
bar as a valid shortcut instead of deleting the existing shortcut.

-> We can't define shortcuts/key combinations with the "Win" key
-> We can't delete shortcuts, as the space bar is not interpreted properly.

I Had a look at that bug. I do'nt understand what it's about, too technical for
me ! ;o)
But is it really related to my bug ?? Anyway, they said it was fixed, so I
updated HOary, but the problem is still there, short-cuts with the "Win" key
don't work. Or do I need ot reboot the machine for the update to take effect ??
