System shortcut setting is always restored to default

I did change the keyboard shortcuts for window navigation in Unity to use hjkl (vim movement). I did reassign the shortcuts via GUI in System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts.

Here are two examples of the assigned shortcuts:

  • Move window one workspace to the left = Shift+Ctrl+Alt+H
  • Switch to workspace left = Ctrl+Alt+H

Occasionally, when restarting the maching, these shortcuts are being reset to theit default values:

  • Move window one workspace to the left = Shift+Ctrl+Alt+Left
  • Switch to workspace left = Ctrl+Alt+Left

How can I make these changes permanent? Can someone help me, narrowing down the problem?

    Did you upgrade from 12.04? Because I've seen another user ask a similar question so I'm wondering whether it affects only some people who upgrade or whether it's a fresh install issue. – Oyibo Oct 31 '12 at 8:41
  • Yes, indeed I did an upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10. – Nils Blum-Oeste Oct 31 '12 at 13:09
