Wrong hotkeys in XFCE.

I am using the latest slackware with XFCE and I have the following problem:

The hotkeys are wither not working or doing wrong things.

The usual set of Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+X works, but for example, in xfce4-terminal, the underlined hotkeys in the menu (Shift+Ctrl+N, Shift+Ctrl+T) don't work at all.
In the thunar itself, the keycombo Ctrl+Shift+N is supposed to create a new directory, but it rather creates a new window of thunar, which seems weird.

Any ideas?

Take a look at your XFCE Keyboard Settings->Shortcuts and make sure there isn't a conflicting command set up for the accelerator keys you're trying to access.

Everything works here or (Xfce, slackware64-14.1 multilib. Besides dijetlo's recommendation (Settings Manager - Keyboard - Application Shortcuts), also check Settings Manager - Keyboard - Layout since perhaps the default is not to your keyboard's liking, or its set to something goofy.

Are you sure your SHIFT key is working? Try the other one, or another keyboard. In thunar, while Ctrl+Shift+N create a new folder, Ctrl+N created a new window. Hmmmmm....
