On Ubuntu 13.04 desktop I am trying to change keyboard layout.

First in System Settings -> Keyboard Layout -> Options -> Alt-Win behaviour, I picked the following mapping:

Ctrl is mapped to Alt

Alt is mapped to Win.

And that works perfect.

Now I want to change shortcut for application switching (since I swapped keys it is Win-Tab now, I want it back on Alt-Tab)

In System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Navigation, I picked new combination for Switch Applications.

It is properly detected as Ctrl-Tab, but it is not working. It still works as Alt-Tab (since I swapped keyboard in first step, it is actually Win-Tab).

Is this a bug ? Is there any way I can change combination for switching applications ? Thanks.
