I've recommended a similar procedure (setting then unsetting) in another
context. I felt quite foolish but I know that sometimes works.
Anyway, I used Settings >Window Manager >Keyboard to assign *SHIFT+F4*
to Move Window to Left Workspace. The keybinding is showing as
*SHIFT+F16* (there is no F16). I set it twice with the same result.
Somehow F4 has become F16. =-O
The keybinding *was* working in OpenOffice.org. I'll try it on Kde
Using Xfce 184.108.40.206 (Xfce 4.4 RC1) on PCLinuxOS 0.93 www.revivalcentres.org
