[Bug 1482181] Re: Media keys (ctrl-alt-t, brightness, play/pause) don't work randomly after logging


I'm getting it for a couple of releases. It was one on 10 login before.
It seems recently, it's one every 4 of them, so quite high in term of

monitoring and pressing a media key gives:
signal time=1443171424.483295 sender=:1.28 -> destination=(null destination) serial=7116 path=/org/gnome/Shell; interface=org.gnome.Shell; member=AcceleratorActivated
   uint32 33
   uint32 0
   uint32 9782134

So, the signal is sent.

I checked, and I have u-s-d running.

Bug description:
  I've installed 15.10 and I can't open a terminal using ctrl-alt-t or
  use any other media keys. All system shorcuts as well don't work.

  Note that this started at least in 14.10.

  Restarting Unity "fixes" it (or logging out/logging back), so it seems
  a race between Unity and settings daemon at startup.
