That's why I run Sawfish: it works well with ROX. As for Metacity, I
was going to give it a try, but then I read about needing to use gconf
to set key bindings and I decided to stick with Sawfish.

No, because I don't have Openbox installed. However, I have tried it
with Blackbox, Fluxbox, XFCE, and fvwm95 since my last post, and none of
those work either. I even tried it as a different user, with a fresh
Choices directory, using an older version of ROX. No change. A single
key with no modifier simply won't work. The same thing happens when
trying to set hotkeys for panel items, by the way.
I'm completely mystified. Nobody else is having problems, but on my
system, it's like this capability doesn't even exist. I'm running a
more or less stock Slackware 9.1 installation, so it's not like I have
an exotic software configuration here. Since it happens on every WM and
for every user account, it pretty much _has_ to be a problem with the
system (X11?, GTK+?) or with ROX. Where the problem could be, though, I
haven't the slightest idea.
