Alt+num combination being ignored?


   I'm trying to have Alt+num (num being from 0 to 9 on the numbers on
top of the standard keys) combination work in irssi ran through urxvt
on Gnome 2.16.2, but for some reason, it keeps ignoring the left-alt,
but the right-alt+num works. Since I also saw that I set
alt_shift_toggle for a us/es keygroup switch and it doesn't work unless
I push both alt keys, I am guessing either Gnome is grabbing those and
not letting them be used, or Xorg keymapping out of place. However,
using Gnome's terminal, if I use left-alt+num it switches tabs as it
should (which is why I am not using Gnome's terminal, I want that for

I have attached a small text file with two excerpts of the log and the
conf for further pondering.

Thanks and regards.
