How do I modify or disable the HUD's use of the Alt key?

I'm using 12.04 and when playing Heroes of Newerth, I have a problem when trying to use items from my inventory. I press ALT+Q or other combinations but nothing happens.

I figured out that it's because Ubuntu opens that window where you type a command for the application you are currently using. How can I tell Ubuntu not to listen for my ALT key when playing HON?

It works if you change the shortcut for the HUD from ALT to whatever you like.
