Description of problem:
alt+f4 no longer works when I want to close a window.
Confusingly, alt+f4 is still assigned under gnome keyboard shortcuts, and reassigning it and restarting X does not help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

ALT-F4 is an application/toolkit sequence, not likely an X server issue.

Run "xev" in a terminal, and press the ALT key, and the F4 key.  Do these
keys generate events?  If so, the bug should be reassigned to the appropriate
gnome component, although it might not be a bug there either.  It could just
be misconfiguration or something.

Setting status to NEEDINFO_REPORTER, and awaiting response.

Okay, I'm dumb. I have a small "F lock" key on my keyboard, pressing that fixes
the problem. *shakes head in disbelief*
