Does pressing just "alt" pop up an ubuntu launcher thing (sometimes) ? That would reliably interfere with this kind of stuff, I would imagine...

(I've turned it off on my copy of ubuntu)

Yes !

Confirmed after turned off in System Settings/Keyboard/Shortcuts everything's fine.
Strange though the right ALT is not working.

That's "AltGr" which some OSes treat differently for this purpose and others. I think that means we can mark this as WFM (as we can't and shouldn't change the OS shortcut behaviour; users that use access keys will have changed it anyway). :-)
