Bug? Alt-Fx keys switch VTs

after a recent upgrade of my Debian unstable, I experience very wired
behavior of certain keyboard shortcuts. It seems that keyboard shortcuts
that have some meaning in Linux text console (namely Alt-Fx,
Alt-left/right, Ctrl-Alt-Del) retains this same meaning even if I log to
Xfce (through GDM). This is very annoying since I heavily use Alt-F2 to
execute xfrun4 and instead of showing me the dialog box, now it switches
me to the text console. Also pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del (which I map to
xfce4-session-logout) reboots my computer unconditionally.
I'm not sure whether it is Xfce related but if I first log in and out to
KDE and then I login to Xfce, the problem disappears. I've tried to boot
different kernels (2.6.3) and the problem appears in all of them.
Does anybody know, what might the cause of this behavior?
