Screenshot with (Alt+)Print Scrn

Description of problem:
neither Print Scrn or Alt+Print Scrn work in GNOME. They should take a screenshot (or current window with alt) and a dialog would appear allowing you to save or copy the image.
In Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts it lists the keys:
Take a screenshot Print
Take a screenshot of a window <Alt>Print
(Bug #171381 reports this failing silently in FC4, but it works fine in FC4 for me so I assume this is a different problem?).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into a GNOME session.
2. Press the Print Scrn key (or Alt+Print Scrn).
Actual Results: Nothing
Expected Results: gnome-panel-screenshot should start.
Ah yes, this problem is with the key bindings. Changing Keyboard Shortcuts to (say)
Take a screenshot of a window F3
and it works fine.
