I was using Ctrl+< as a shortcut to show Guake in 11.10. Now when I define the shortcut it recognizes the combination but when I try to use it it doesn't work. Instead, it recognizes < as being the shortcut.

This is happening in more than one computer.

Any ideas why?

This seems not to be a problem of Unity/Ubuntu but of Guake - as you can set Ctrl+< as shortcut for other applications - which work. But I can repeat and confirm what you described for Guake. –  Jakob May 25 '12 at 11:44
    
doesn't work for Gnome 3 as well –  ibo.ezhe May 25 '12 at 19:03

I have put this on their track as an issue: http://guake.org/ticket/454

In the meantime, I'd say you'll have to use some other shortcuts.

@edited by Postadelmaga: In the ticket page there is also a patch: I have downloaded 0.4.4 code and applied the patch and it work fine now
