Bug Description

 lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release: 12.04
apt-cache policy gconf-editor
  Installiert: 3.0.1-1ubuntu1
  Kandidat: 3.0.1-1ubuntu1

The crash of gconf-editor was the result of looking for the reason, why my windows do not react on commands like Alt+F10, Alt+F8, Alt+F7, Alt+F4 Alt+Tab and so on. Clicking through thousands of possibilities gconf-editor suddenly crashed. I cannot reproduce the failure. I think this is not important.

Important is the system noreaction to basical shortcuts, only theSuper/Mode4/Windows-Key gives a result with the dash. Even Alt+F1 or Alt+F2 are dead.

If my crash-report is not correctly on this place, I ask you kindly to send it to that part of ubuntu, who has to be busy with these problem of Alt+F1 and so on.
