Bug Description

I would like to unset the "activate the window menu" key binding once and for all. I don't need this feature and I need Alt+Space for Emacs. To do that, I open the unity-control-center, go to the Keyboard pane, select the Shortcuts tab, view the "Windows" group of shortcuts, and press DELETE on the "activate the window menu". Everything is great and I can use Alt+Space in Emacs. But if I reboot my computer, Alt+Space is bound again to "activate the window menu" and I have to restart the process from scratch (which works but is very annoying).

I'm on a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04 with a fresh HOME folder.

This bug has been here for years and this is the first time I bother reporting it. Sorry about that.

unity-control-center doesn't run in the session, it's just an UI to do changes, if something loose its value when u-c-c is not running it's not due to it. Reassigning to unity-settings-daemon but it could be compiz/something else as well
