Yesterday I upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10. I can't use CTRL+F key combination anymore. It is remap to launch Xterm.
Does anyone know how to remove this mapping? I have never mapped to this key combination and not sure how this came about.

The culprit is xbinkeys, a software made to create custom shortcuts. The CTRL+F lauching xterm is an example in the configuration file (~.xbindkeysrc). Since Ubuntu 11.10 doesn't realise it is an example and use it by default, overriding all other uses of CTRL+F.
In order to set things back to normal do as follow :
killall -HUP xbindkeys
