  Right Alt key is always selected under "key to choose 3rd level"

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

  On a fresh install of Karmic, under the keyboard layout options, the
  right Alt key is selected under "Key to Choose 3rd Level". I'm not
  even sure what the 3rd level is, as I've never needed this setting
  before. On Jaunty, there is nothing set under this option. As a result
  on Karmic, this breaks the right Alt key. For example right Alt+F2
  doesn't do anything. But when you try to uncheck this option, it
  doesn't remember the setting. The next time you open the layout
  options, it's checked again. There seems to be no way to uncheck this

  What should happen
  1. Open System > Preferences > Keyboard
  2. Go to the Layouts tab
  3. Click Layout Options
  4. Expand Key to Choose 3rd Level
  5. Uncheck Right Alt
  5. Close the Layout Options window
  6. Reopen Layout Options
  7. Nothing should be checked under Key to Choose 3rd Level

  What happens instead
  Right Alt is still selected after unchecking it, closing the Layout Options window and reopening it.
