Setting the old shortcut to a new action, still doesnt make the new shortcut work.

When pressing the new shortcut in thunar, or even in the window manager dialog, it acts like only 'D' is being pressed, as its searching for 'D'.

I think I figured out what's happening. xfwm4 is still adding the Ctrl + Alt + D shortcut for new users. Try this and let me know if it works.

1. Apply the attached diff to /etc/xdg/xdg-xubuntu/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml
2. Create a new user (Menu > Users and Groups)
3. Login as the new user
4. Test the Super + D shortcut
