Since upgrading to 11.10 and unity, Ctrl+Shift+C does not work anymore. Paste works well, and also selecting the command from the menu. The shortcut is properly defined in the preferences dialog.

Any cure?

does pressing the middle mouse key still paste the selected content? – Michael K Oct 31 '11 at 11:30
yes. paste also works with ctrl+shift+v. – Udi Oct 31 '11 at 11:36

I found the problem: The Glipper app grabbed this shortcut key, but silently failed to open it's applet, providing no visual clue.
