The dialog is pretty horrible - but it seems to imply that all Alt & Win
keys should be "meta".  My Win key, though, is also configured as "3rd
level chooser" (there was a reason for that, but I can't remember if it was
a good one!).

This dialog lets me choose between using Alt or Meta (which, according to
the previous dialog should be the same key), but neither one actually seems
to accomplish anything.  Of course, I have to repeat everything I try here,
in an NX window, back on the actual machine, because you never know what
might be being intercepted before it gets to the window manager.
