[Bug 1078564] [NEW] Bindings for custom keys on Lenovo x230t don't work


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

i) Steps to reproduce

1) Open keyboard shortcut settings
2) Add a test shortcut
3) assign a single key to the shortcut. Normally a laptop special key is set here

ii) Expected result

Shortcuts set this way just work.

iii) Actual result

No effect whatsoever.

An interesting side note: If you have the key bound to some action with
xbindkeys, it will not work initially after starting unity. If you then
assign the key to a specific action in the keyboard settings, it will
still not work. Buf after having removed the key again from the shortcut
settings, xbindkeys takes over and from there on the xbindkeys shortcut
works for the rest of the session.

I must admit I'm a bit baffled that such a bug slipped into a release.
The whole shortcut system is a mess (self resetting shortcuts on every
login, this...).
