Window switch on typing a capital d (which I can't do here for obvious reasons).

I have SUSE version 11 with gnome (purchased pre-installed on an HP notebook, and I'm green as apple with it, unfortunately).

While in microsoft word (via Crossover) I accidentally hit the ctrl and/or fn key, or some other strange combo. the result is that whenever I try to enter a capital d, any application I'm in shifts to workspace 1. Also, Ctrl C doesn't work at all, though I can copy using other methods, such as selecting the "copy" icon in Word or rightclicking the menu.

I suspected a problem with the keyboard shortcuts, so I checked the keybinding properties, thinking that there might be a conflict. There were no shortcuts that used a Ctrl +C or a Shift +d. I also checked the keyboard shortcuts in Msword, but the "copy" shortcut is as it should be, and there's no shift +d shortcut. Also, this problem happens when I'm not using Msword.

I welcome any suggestions you might have.

OK. I am now officially embarrassed-- after checking the shortcuts and looking for the relevant schema definition files, I shut down in exasperation. Upon restart, everything is working, and I have no idea why.

So, I apologize for any time wasted.
