I've just upgraded to hoary, and now I'm seeing something that looks a lot like
bug #8146: my windows key is no longer able to be assigned to keyboard
shortcuts, and the existing shortcuts I had that use it don't work anymore.

I've tried to use the altwin:super_win workaround described in comments 16 and
18 of #1390, but I get "Error activating XKB configuration". The output of the
commands that error dialog suggests are:

andrew@trogdor ~ $ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc104", "us", "inet(hpi6)", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xfree86", "pc104", "us", "inet(hpi6)", ""
andrew@trogdor ~ $ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/kbd
 layouts = [us inet(hpi6)]
 model = pc104
 overrideSettings = false
 options = [altwin altwin:super_win]

I'm not sure what package is responsible, so I'm leaving as UNKNOWN, but CCing
Daniel Stone because he probably knows :)
