comment Distribution upgrade problem “No new release found”
Note that when /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades contains Prompt=lts, sudo do-release-update -d can be used to upgrade to a stable, non-lts, release. I'm currently at precise, have configured to only upgrade to the next lts , but sudo do-release-update -d will upgrade to quantal (which has long been stable at the time of writing)

comment Window title-bars missing occasionally in Unity
It solves the problem for me, but only temporarily. The process remains active and has to be backgrounded (if you want to use the terminal for anything else). If it gets killed, window borders are gone again.

comment How can I prevent Unity from grabbing keybindings (allowing an application to handle them first)?
It has been fixed in Precise Pangolin: setting the binding to 'disabled' or something different in ccsm solves the problem.

Are you referring to the 'Key to put keyboard-focus on launcher'? It seems I've already set that one to 'Disabled'. Otherwise, I can't find any mention of <Alt>F1 (on the Behavior tab or elsewhere in the Ubuntu Unity Plugin settings).
