ALT-SPACE issue

Hello guys,

On windows XP, with the latest #856 build, (with Visual studio keymap and XP
look'n feel) when I hit ALT-SPACE for Smart Type code completion, the
context menu of the IDEA frame is shown !
Did anyone else notice that ?

Alt+Space was always a system shortcut in Windows. You can't use it in your
apps. The same for Alt+Tab.

Hmmm, I see. But with #833 and previous, it used to work.
Swing used to catch the event, and did not forward it to the window frame.
But with #856 it does.
So maybe it is time to change the two default shortcuts ?
Both Alt-space and Alt-shitf-space, because they both forward the event to
the window frame :(
By default, those two shorcuts are mapped to Smart type completion.

Seems it is the difference between 1.4.1 and 1.4.2.

I always thought default for smart type completion is CtrlShiftSpace

Right ! It seems :)

For visual studio's keymap, it was alt-space and alt-shift-space.
I'll have to change my habits

I also used alt-space - much better than control-shift-space.

I changed the shortcut to shift space but i'm always getting them mixed and
the system dropdown is being shown all the time :)
