I spoke too soon. Even with this solution the special keys won't work.  
The strange thing is that other shortcuts (ex. I've set Ctrl+Alt+w to 
open x-www-browser) work normally. The shortcuts involving special keys 
don't work until I reconfigure them (to the same value!).

I have also used xev to check that the keys generate the proper symbols 
and didn't see any problems.
