Description of problem:
In fedora 7, under gnome, it is no longer possible to set the super key to show the panel menu. This is a show stopper for anyone who has, like myself, migrated from windows, or anyone seeking to migrate from windows.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome 2.18.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to set super key to show panel menu

Actual Results:
It is not possible

Expected Results:
There should be an option to enable this, as there was in Fedora 6, 5, 4

Additional info:
 This is a basic piece of functionality without which it is not possible for users like myself to use the computer in a reasonably familiar manner, which is why I am reporting it as a bug. This has never been possible under KDE which demands another key to be used in conjuction with the super key. ( SUSE  manages not only to incorporate this funcionality in the os, but even includes the facility that a second press of the key hides the panel menu, also a very fundamental piece of functionality for those used to windows.

Run gnome-keybinding-properties (System/Preferences/Personal/Keyboard Shortcuts)
and select whatever you want. Also, if the problem is that the key on your
keyboard with a Windows logo is not bound to Super key, go to
gnome-keyboard-properites (System/Preferences/Hardware/Keyboard Properties) and
in the tab keyboard layout options fix the Win key behavior to your liking in
the "Alt/Win key behavior" cateogory.

If there is something else going on here, please, reopen this bug with
additional information. Otherwise, I think, that this it NOTABUG.
