That is too many contingencies for me to believe that it is a common
scenario. You are describing a situation in which the user decides to
press Ctrl-Alt-Delete, which is a key combination for an unrelated
operating system, and actually misses one of the three keys. He then
lands on one specific key nearby.

Is there a documented case of this happening? Has any user ever
complained that this situation has caused him dataloss? Seriously? Go
dig up a mailing list archive, for any distro, that shows this
phenomenon happening.
