    It appears that this problem can be fixed by adding the following to

            Section "InputClass"
                  Identifier        "system-setup-keyboard"
                  MatchIsKeyboard     "on"
                  Option        "XkbOptions"    "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

    At least it works for me.

    Thanks for the help,
