F11: xorg decision to disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace



I was reading through the F11A Release Notes when I came across this:

"The key combination Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to kill the X server has been disabled by default as a decision of the upstream Xorg project."

Having to deal with many servers and workstations in a company it is crucial that Ctrl-Alt-Backspace be enabled by default. There are times when your KVM has lost mouse control or X is in a tight loop and something like Ctrl-Alt-Backspace can save the situation. This is much more common than the uncommon cases that are illustrated as to why this has been removed as default.

Ctrl-Alt-Backspace needs to be restored as the "default" and Emacs users or others that find themselves in conflict with Java expressions can just disable it for their very limited purpose.

Regards,
Gerry
