Bug Description

I found one bug on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS.

How to reproduce:
1. Go to <System Settings> and click on <Keyboard> /<Shortcut> tab.

2. Navigate to <Custom Shortcuts> and then you can add new custom shortcuts following as:
<Ctrl><Alt><Delete> for evince
<Ctrl><Alt>l for gedit

3. In this case, you can see the dialog which prompts the "The shortcut is already used for Lock Screen/ Log out. If you reassign the shortcut to gedit/evince, the Lock Screen/Log out shortcut will be disabled."

4. Once you click on the "reassign" button, you can just try to use custom key combinations such as <Ctrl><Alt><Delete>,<Ctrl><Alt>l in order to run application.

It doesn't work.

Expected result:
Applications should be run upon click of custom key combinations such as <Ctrl><Alt><Delete>,<Ctrl><Alt>l.
