Public bug reported:

Affects: control-center (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

When I set a keyboard shortcut for multimedia actions, like play music
or play next music, with a shortcut like CTRL-X, X key get's unusable.

I tryed to use these keys to simulate the funcionality of xmms in
banshee. When I press CTRL-X it was supposed to play or pause music
playback, but after configuring gnome-keybinding-properties, if I press
only X, without CTRL, it play/pause the music.

This is very bad because it makes unusable the key used in key

I'm using gnome-control-center 2.14.1-0ubuntu2, with Ubuntu Dapper.

And I can't see a workaround for this.
