undoing a mistake on the command line...


hi,

i want to transpose "$ bash man" to "$ man bash" using <alt-t> on the command line in ubuntu 10.04. however, doing this in the bash shell activates the "Terminal" menu.

in a bash shell <alt-t> is suppose to transpose the two words to the left of the cursor but the menubar is not passing <alt-t> up the tree to the bash shell.

isn't this a flaw of architecture?

please advise.
