Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Hi! I'm a Chinese.
gcin is a nice Chinese input method on Ubuntu.
In East Asia, we press CTRL+SPACE to swich input method between Chinese and English(since win95 I guess).
But the new version of rhythmbox also use the same hotkey and we can't define it by ourselves,
It makes we can't type Chinese in search box :(
I've tried to set system audio media player hotkey to Ctrl+P,
but the default Ctrl+Space is also working even if I restart system.

How do I solve this problem by compiling source?
or it will fix in new version?

This is not only my problem but also all people who likes gcin and rhythmbox.

I found it is only happen on gcin input method.
I use scim before, and also press ctrl+space to switch input method.
It won't make rhythmbox play but gcin will!
But scim is not good as gcin.
