it is a bit crazy to me too, but I seemed to always have to Google this answer, so I thought it should be here for reference, I guess I'm not the only person who can't seem to remember it. :-) – codeLes Oct 20 '09 at 13:45

this one has replaced the old ctrl+alt+backspace – n611x007 Oct 24 '12 at 12:52

Alt+F7 might also be worth a shot.

I always use Ctrl+Alt+Backspace

as a default in 9.04 (Jaunty) that doesn't work. It's easy to set back I understand, but not the preference of the upstreamers I guess. ;) – codeLes Jul 30 '09 at 19:36
