I had this problem with gnome-terminal and using zsh but switching to kde fixed 
it as it seems konsole does a good job at not getting in the way by dealing 
smartly with shortkeys collision, somehow telling when the shortkey should go to 
the shell and when it should go to konsole. At least until now, maybe I hadn't 
hit the specific key combination that does not work inside konsole yet.

Remote editing of files through ssh often (but not always) inside screen is the 
reason. I know about tramp but haven't had time to look into it yet. I have not 
found an equivalent to screen though.
