Description of problem:
A recent update broke the keyboard shortcuts CTRL+ALT+F1 - F7, so I can no longer switch from Gnome to one of the virtual terminals.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora 11
2. try to switch to vt - works
3. update to latest updates
CTRL+ALT+F1 - F7 no longer work.
CTRL+ALT+F1 - F7 should let me switch to a virtual terminal. Other combinations of CTRL+ALT+... work fine.
Works fine in Xfce and LXDE, so it must be a Gnome problem. Not sure if control-center is the right component though, because I don't recall an update. But as gnome-keybinding-properties is part of controlc-center, I chose this one.
Bastien, are you sure this is xkeyboard-config? If so, why is only Gnome affected?

I can still reproduce this bug, but only for a single user. All other accounts are fine, so I guess I hosed my config and close this bug now.
