[Bug 1497490] [NEW] escape key bindings with or without modifiers do not work


Public bug reported:

All the bugs that are related to older versions of compiz are being closed.
Since the bug still exists and it was closed due to it being old, then I need to re-create it.

If it isn't going to be fixed for some philosophical reason, I'd like to
see it posted here and that's fine.

The bug is that no binding in compiz that includes the Escape key will
work.  Evidently that is by design at some level, but Alt-Ctrl-Esc is a
handy binding to have.

Simply put, if you try to bind any function to the Escape key by itself or with Shift/Alt/Super/Ctrl, the 'Grab' button will allow you to assign it, but the assignment will not work and there is no error reported. 
Not in the interface, nor in a logfile (that I can see yet).
