Hello everyone,

In Jaunty alpha 3 you can´t use CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE to restart the X-server
anymore. I know that some users complained about restarting the X-server,
but I see a lot more, including yours truly, complaining about the fact that
the shortcut got disabled. I think it's a good idea to create a GUI to set
X-server options, but I assume that most people don´t want to have to
restart their pc when the GUI chrashes. It´s not windows, after all. What I
propose is that people who want to get rid of the shortcut can do so easily
via a simple GUI menu, but that it´s enabled by default.

Yours sincerely,

Liam Zwitser
