Bug Description

I set keyboard shortcuts for workspace switching to alt-1 and alt-2 to switch left and right respectively. These sometimes revert to default after apt-get upgrade. I assume when gnome-settings daemon is upgraded. Happened again today, I've attached apt history log for your perusal.

The apt log shows

gnome-control-center:amd64 (3.6.3-0ubuntu44, 3.6.3-0ubuntu45)

I believe this means that I upgraded from 3.6.3-0ubuntu44 to 3.6.3-0ubuntu45

I'm not sure it's upgrades that cause this issue, because I'm also experiencing loss of custom keyboard shortcuts. I think the reverting of keyboard shortcuts back to their default values happens at every reboot, although I think it doesn't always happen.

In my case I didn't upgrade, but did a fresh install of 13.10 instead.
