[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#370482: multiple locations for keyboard shortcuts

That's indeed confusing. The other day I had to ask the mailing list just to
find out the shortcut I was looking for was somewhere else...
It would really be better to put all key bindings managed by Xfce in one
Yes I know other apps can grab keys, but thats not the point. The point is
that two places in Xfce config to put keybidings is really confusing,
because ppl usually don't know/notice (or don't remeber) that xfwm is
running and is another app
