Quick Terminal in Ubuntu Oneiric

If you've tried to open the terminal using alt+F2 in the new Ubuntu (Oneiric), it probably didn't work.  That's because it has a new shortcut: Alt+Ctl+T.

I'm sure it's a fine shortcut, but it's hard to reverse years of habit.  Feel the same?

It's easy to switch back.  Go to:

System Settings > Keyboard > Launchers.
Select Launch Terminal.
Press Backspace to clear Alt+Ctl+T,
Then press Alt+F2.  

You're done.

Supposedly, you can skip the step of clearing the old shortcut and just hold down the new one for a moment to replace it.  Didn't work for me.
