This is really a metacity or gnome-panel bug (not handling keymap change events).
metacity at least handles them in principle.

Which key shortcut did you change?

It's probably ideal to report this on gnome.org as well and add a link 
to that bug here.
Comment 2 darkeye 2002-10-31 20:20:15 EST
I changed the following shortcuts:

Switch to workspace on left -> <Control><Alt>Left
Switch to workspace on right -> <Control><Alt>Right
Switch to workspace above the current space -> <Control><Alt>Up
Switch to workspace below the current space -> <Control><Alt>Down

I guess you can make a better judgement on what other places to enter this bug.

If by chance you try Phoebe or a newer metacity, please let 
us know if this still happens.
