Can't assign keybinding Ctrl-Alt-w

Asked by kenneth hsu on 2012-04-28

In 12.04, I am unable to assign the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-w to anything.

For example, if I go to System Settings - Keyboard - Shortcuts and try to modify the keybinding for "Launch Web Browser" to Ctrl-Alt-w, the window just returns to the main System Settings screen and the new keybinding is not assigned.

I was able to do so without any issues in 11.10.

Any ideas?

If you make a fresh user and log in, is it the same?

Created a new user, and the same problem exists. This was from a clean
12.04 install.
