Description of problem:
I recently upgraded xfwm4 to the last version of xfwm4 in updates-testing repository. I had some shortcuts defined which use the key <Control>. After the upgrade they stop working. If, however, I define a new shortcut which uses <Control>, then it works (now it seems to be called <Primary>.
I attach a copy of my ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a previous version of xfwm4 installed.
2. Define keyboard shortcuts with make use of <Control>
3. Update xfwm4 to xfwm4-4.8.2-1
The previously defined shortcuts won't work
I wonder if this has anything to do with the recent gtk2 update.
Did gtk2 update for you around the same time?
Adding christoph here for his thoughts.
At first I thought this was an xfwm4 bug as we had some trouble with it recently but now I do think it's indeed gtk. I updated to xfwm4-4.8.2-1.fc15.x86_64 and found out that <Control> + <Esc> as shortcut for xfce4-popup-menu is no longer working. Then I downgraded to 4.8.3-4 but the menu did not come back. And I updated to gtk2-2.24.7-3.fc15 on Tuesday, Nov 29, this falls exactly into the time window
Note that the Ctrl key is still working, but it's treated differently. What used to be <Control> has become <Primary>. Smells like gtk to be, but I need to investigate this further.
The gtk 2.24.7-3 update has removed a patch called "keycode-unbind.patch", see
Sounds interesting although I haven't looked into it yet.
Yes, actually at the same time as xfwm4 was updated also gtk2 was upgraded to version 2.24.7-3.

That patch was removed because it got upstreamed in 2.24.8. Still, gtk2 is the cuplrit here. Reassigning.
I have meanwhile tried gtk2-2.24.7-3 from koji: A single keytroke of the Ctrl key is now correctly treated as <Control_L> or <Control_R>, but in combination with other keys it becomes <Primary> again.
You probably mean 2.24.8-3. However, the patch in there does not change the part of the keyhandling code at all, so it would be quite surprising that you should see any difference.
Anyway, accelerators involving Control work fine in gtk2 applications that I am testing here, like the gimp, as well as in gtk-demo.

No, this bug was filed against F15 and 2.24.7-3.fc15 is the latest F15 build in koji. The bug we are talking about here was introduced in 2.24.7-1.fc15 and as AFAIK the keyhandling code was changed several times by Michael Natterer before 2.24.7 was released.
