  This SRU patch correctly manage custom keys and hence resolve custom keys not
  occasionally working on logon


   * Issue 2: Correctly manage custom keys and hence resolve custom keys not
  occasionally working on logon.

     This backports a disco patch to both series targets. Testing over a
  couple of months during the 19.04 cycle shows that custom keyboard
  shortcuts are reliably available after a logout/login or reboot.

  [Test Case]

   * Issue 2: This bug is very difficult to pin down and reliably reproduce. For a test case, pressing CTRL+ALT+T  to open a terminal, Super + E to open a file-manager window should always work after a full reboot & login
     Recommend repeat the above for 10 reboots or more after budgie-desktop is upgraded

  [Regression Potential]

   * Issue 2: The likelihood of regression is negligable since the
  handling of custom keys is now how the maintainer of gnome-settings-
  daemon recommends (upstream https://github.com/solus-project/budgie-
  desktop/issues/1763).  In any-case, there is a potential that custom
  key handling will still occur to be not available after a reboot,
  requiring a user to continue using the current workaround of logging
  out and logging in again.
