[Jaunty] Alt+F2 no longer working in compiz. Used in terminal, prints ";3Q"

Bug Description

Today, after a dist-upgrade, I found out that the Run Application shortcut was no longer working.
Actually, if used in terminal, prints ";3Q" on the command line, while Alt+F1 prints ";3P" and Alt+F3 prints ";3R".
I am not even able to access terminal from my user-defined shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+T".
If used when Firefox is focused, Alt+F2 reports a FoxyProxy error: "Error reading string resource: quickadd.disabled", that has never shown up.
uname -a
Linux Mycroft 2.6.28-7-generic #20-Ubuntu SMP Mon Feb 9 15:43:21 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
Attached, /var/log/apt/term.log (in italian)

Same issue here as well, Alt+F2 is no longer working in Jaunty.

Fixed according to that bug report. The problem appears to be Compiz no longer passing Alt-F2 through, and requires it's own gnome compat plugin loaded.
