Bug#492783: x11-common: Ctrl+Alt+F7 and Ctrl+Alt+F8 signals allowed to propagate to nested applications

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.3+14
Severity: normal

The Ctrl+Alt+F7 and Ctrl+Alt+F8 keystrokes to switch between two X
terminals seem to be propagating to
the constituent applications as well. For example, if you have Firefox
running in our first terminal and
you switch from the second terminal to the first using Ctrl+Alt+F7,
then Firefox manages to capture that
event as F7. Similar effects can be seen with Ctrl+Alt+F8 when you
have OpenOffice.org running. OpenOffice responds by opening up its
File menu.
