Following up to my own mail, I've found out that running the
gnome-control-center and selecting the "fonts" option causes the
key combination to revert to its normal behavior. I'm not sure what the
cause is, maybe something to do with having gconf running or some such. I
rarely use Gnome at any rate, but I should still be able to use xfree86
normally independant of any desktop software.
As before, if anyone knows the solution to having ctrl-alt-bs work normally
always, it would be appreciated.
Do a "xmodmap -pke" before you run the control center and do it again
after you've run it. Save the output to a file in both cases and use
'diff' to find the differences between the files.
Analyzing those differences will help you find out how to re-enable
ctrl-alt-backspace without starting the control center. Ultimately,
you'll probably enter a "xmodmap -e '...'" to get the key-combination
