Moving windows to workspace doesn't work with Shift+Alt+( (9) and Shift+Alt+)...


Description Marius Vlad 2019-12-19 09:46:21 CET
I have 10 workspaces. Moving windows to those workspaces is (key)binded with Alt+Shift+1 until Alt+Shift+0  (so, 2, 3, etc). This works
just fine until workspace 8, after which switching to 9 or 0 (10) no longer works. I've replaced Alt+Shift+9 with Alt+Shift+> and it works. 
If the window is a xterm/urxvt I see that the key is interpreted by the X terminal. 

my xfce version from debian testing:

I was able to assign and use Shift+Alt+(  as a keybinding for an application command, but I can confirm that doing the same for any xfwm4 command does not trigger the desired action.
