Bug#606453: gnome-control-center: Alt+Print doesn't work and custom keybindings are reset every session.

Package: gnome-control-center
Version: 1:2.30.1-2
Severity: important

Alt+Print combination doesn't work as it seems this is a reserved shortcut for
some fundamental operation. Ok, most probably this has been fixed in a later
version of GNOME.
But if one changes it, say to Mod4+Print, the shortcut only works during the
current session. In the next session the shortcut has reset itself to the
default Alt+Print.
