Alt key ingored

Version: IntelliJ 6.0.1, Build 5784
Platform: Linux kubuntu 2.6.15-23-386 #1 PREEMPT Tue May 23 13:49:40 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

Problem: Alt key ignored. I recently opened IntelliJ and noticed that all of my shortcuts involving the Alt key (e.g., Ant tasks), as well as normal menu shortcuts (e.g., Alt+F for the File menu) were being ignored. If the focus was on an editing window, the key input would be entered into the file. If the focus was a sidebar it would use the key input as a type-ahead find search. Restarting IntelliJ fixed the problem.

I searched the issue tracker but found no results. Is this a known issue or should I create a bug report?

Thanks,

Jonathan.

If this problem happens consistently and you can reproduce it, please file
