You need

This worked for about a week -- but nannyism has crept further. In
the latest Sid, even this trick doesn't work anymore. How to get
it back, I wonder.


for me
	right-Alt + Print + k
does the trick!


How does that map to the Macintosh keyboard? I have no key(s) marked "print". On a Dell keyboard "Print Screen" is also marked "SysRq". But there's no "Sysrq" key on the Mac keyboard, either...

How on earth did you find this out?

Also, do you know where this is set, so I could change it? Or is
it hard-coded somehow? Anyway, thanks for the information.

I am equally flabergasted at the apparent obscurity of this key combo.

Thanks for the help!
