Unmappable keyboard combinations on OSX

I'd like to hear what other OSX users have to say about a bug I filed quite some time ago: IDEA-17392. Basically, since Selena it has been impossible to map some (but not all, see the bug report for details) key combinations that involve the Alt key.

A short analysis was made, but the conclusion is, in my opinion, incorrect. This isssue is very important to me, but apparently not to the development team, which is why I'd like to know if there are any other people how are having the same problem?

I would bring it up with the apple developers, as they seem to be the ones responsible for generally poor keyboard support on OS x - not the intellij developers. imo..


Well, that is certainly possible, but it worked fine in previous versions of IDEA, and it also works in other Java-based applications, like JEdit. What I don't really understand is why it stopped working.
