gnome-settings-daemon handles multimedia keys etc.

I can confirm here the same problem, but some shortcuts do work (e.g.
alt+f2), so it must only be the shortcuts g-s-d handles.

I can confirm that g-s-d is communicating with PulseAudio (pacmd
list-clients shows gnome-settings-daemon there), so I presume the
problem is just in the keyboard handling side of it).
