I just checked, and XKB is apparently turned on.  At least I get the following 
output when running ./config.status again:
XKB Support ......... yes

Any kind of drop-down box disables global shortcuts for me.  The first time I 
noticed it was in N├╝rnberg last March, and at that time it was happening on 
all the machines I tried it on...
