Package: libgtk2.0-0
Version: 2.24.8-2
Severity: important


since the 2.24.8 upgrade, my Alt modifier stopped working in terminals
(tried with xfce4-terminal, sakura and xterm). I usually use alt in (at
least) both situation:

* alt-d to kill the next word in my shell
* alt-a to jump to the last active window in irssi

This seems related to

I'm not sure what can be done for that, but *please* provide a way to
bring the old behavior back.
