Hi It is quite strange - I have Dontzap disabled in my xorg.conf, I told hal to zap X properly and added setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp to my .xinitrc. But when I log into a Gnome session I won't have a chance to use this key combination.

But when I log into a Gnome session I won't have a chance to use this key combination. The weird thing about this is that it only happens when I am logged in with my username and use Gnome. Using another user with Gnome or starting another wm with my username works perfectly.

I can confirm there is something in gnome preventing from restarting x with ctrl-alt-backspace. I have both don't zap set in xorg.conf as adjusted my fdi keyboard file. I know that the configuration works because i can use ctrl-alt-backspace in the gdm login screen and xmonad, but in gnome. Executing setxkbmap after gnome has been started (more or less) solves the problem.
