Somebody decided to choose the wrong default modifier key, so people
that was using default config as been caught, and those that changed
all, were not. Change it from Ctrl to other thing (Hyper / Super is a
good idea, IMHO), it is the widget below the list of bindings.

BTW, playing with .Xdefaults you can change font with keybindings,
faster than the Ctrl menu, IMO (having both methods if nicer, of
course). :]

Also, another note about "funny" Sawfish configs that seem to be a
plague in last months, got this from SF list (John Harper replies to a
message from Dave Fallon, Subject Re: What's the best way to post bugs
about sawfish now?):

This may be a bug in the default keybindings of the ximian sawfish
package. Run `sawfish-ui', select `Bindings' and look in the `Title'
context. If there are any bindings to Button1-Click1, remove them!
