Bug Description

Installed Ubuntu 12.04 64bit today, switched to Gnome Classic (no effects) and I can't assign Super+L to Lock Screen function.

I go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> System, then I click on Lock Screen and press "Super + L", it appears in the list but when I press it again it doesn't work.

If I set it back to Ctrl+Alt+L it works again. Actually, I tried to set it to different Super + ?? combinations, and neither of them work.
if I assign Super+L to so other command, like Start Terminal, it works.

1) The release of Ubuntu you are using, via 'lsb_release -rd' or System -> About Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Release: 12.04

2) The version of the package you are using, via 'apt-cache policy pkgname' or by checking in Software Center
  Installed: 1:3.4.2-0ubuntu0.3
  Candidate: 1:3.4.2-0ubuntu0.3
  Version table:

        500 precise-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:3.4.1-0ubuntu1 0
        500 precise/main amd64 Packages

3) What you expected to happen
Super+L locks screen

4) What happened instead
Nothing, I just see "L" typed in a text field (if focus is on a text field)
