Subject: gnome-terminal: ALT do not work anymore
Date: Fri, 18 Nov 2011 15:32:46 -0200
Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 3.2.1-1
Severity: important

Hello,

The ALT key do not work anymore inside gnome-terminal. For example, ALT+B (in
Emacs or BASH prompt) or ALT+X (in Emacs) just inserts the characters b or x
ignoring the key combination.

Best,
semente

Confirmed on Belgian keyboard layout as well. Looks like something eats the Alt keystroke before it can be passed on.

Thanks.
