Not sure about your quote. That's not what I said. I am talking about Alt+F1 & Alt+F2 (for Gnome Menu and for the Run dialogue respectively.)
I don't understand why "Alt" comes up as "Super L" when I try to set a keyboard shortcut for the run dialogue. It's not possible to have "Super L + F1" .... unfortunately!
I might try a test and upgrade to Jaunty.
