Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

In gnome terminal if i want to copy some text i might select with the
mouse and then right click. If my other hand is on the keyboard I might
be tempted to press "c" to copy text to the clipboard. However "c" is
the shortcut key for both "copy" and "close". Guess which ones is first!

Would it make sense to use a different key as the shortcut for those two
