           Summary: Xfce shortcuts with "Alt" are not working after adding:
                    Option "XkbLayout" to xorg.conf
           Product: Xfce
           Version: 4.4.0
          Platform: PC (x86)
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: rayfire at delfi.lt

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:
Gecko/20070309 Firefox/
Build Identifier: 

After adding:
Option "XkbLayout" "us,lt"
to xorg.conf file, in order to support different language layouts, after
starting xfce shortcuts with "Alt" are not working anymore. (Alt+Tab,
Alt+F4...), Shortcuts without "Alt" works OK (Ctrl+F1, Ctrl+F2, Ctrl+Esc...)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Exit from GUI (Xorg or anything)
2. Edit xorg.conf file
3. Edit keyboard section in "InputDevice"
4. Add Option "XkbLayout" "us,lt"
My section looks like:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard1"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
        Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc101"
        #caused to stop working "Alt" xfce shortcuts
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us,lt,ru(phonetic)"
        Option      "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle"

5. Start again Xorg with xfce
6. Try closing applications "Alt+F4" or switching "Alt+Tab"
Actual Results:  
Everything works, I can switch layouts, but shortcuts are not working, I can
not close window by Alt+F4, or switch window by Alt+Tab.

Expected Results:  
Shortcuts inside xfce should be working as they worked before.

2.6.21 kernel (same was with older kernel)
Xorg 7.2
Glib 1.2.10
GlibC 2.3.6
GTK+ 2.10.9
Xfce 4.4.1
