Bug Description

Since about a week, all window manager shortcuts are broken, that is: pressing them does nothing. This affects most prominently Alt-F4 and Alt-Tab. The panel's shortcuts, like Alt, Super and Super+Number, are still working, as are shortcuts inside applications (and every other keyboard input).

xev tells me that all input events for Alt-F4 are sent to the client window.

This system is a virtual machine in VirtualBox under a 64-bit Windows 7 host; guest additions are installed. The system is used for web development; my typical session contains Firefox, Konsole (from KDE), Pidgin and pgAdmin III.
