When the keyboard shortcuts for Next/previous tab is set to Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab they don't work. If I set it to Ctrl+Shift+Alt+N it works.
Did you disable this key-combo for the window manager? Because otherwise the WM catches the key events and Terminal won't see them at all.
I don't know. I never enabled it, it doesn't do anything and it's not in the list in Settings -> Keyboard Preferences -> Shortcuts or Window Manager -> Keyboard. And I have the same problem when I use twm instead of xfwm.
Hm, sorry, no idea. I cannot get that to work here either. For some reason the key events aren't passed to the application.
Maybe the Xorg people have done something weird?

No, I guess it's something in GTK/GDK.
Like Benny said, not a terminal bug.
What's weird is that it's possible to bind ctrl+tab to an application shortcut in xfwm, and it works.
Xfwm and terminal use a different way if handling accelerators (xfwm directly from x, terminal relies on gtk). <Ctrl><Tab> is in gtk handled as an invalid accelerator, so to 'fix' this terminal will check if the accelerator is valid before setting it. As a result pressing <Ctrl><Tab> will do nothing in the shortcuts editor from now on.
I'm a new Xubuntu 11.04 user, and I'm extremely happy so far, aside from a few minor issues (most of which have been reported already, from what I can see).
Like many others, I would really like to be able to use <Ctrl>Tab and <Ctrl><Shift>Tab to switch tabs in my terminal. This is a common shortcut in just about every other application which supports tabs, and I don't understand why the GTK developers don't want to let applications use tab key as they see fit.
I've seen dozens of bug reports and similar discussions going on regarding other GTK applications (gnome-terminal in particular). In one such discussion (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123994), a user pointed out that pidgin explicitly overrides this (there is even a code snippet from pidgin in the post).
Since GTK seems reluctant to change their position, could a similar change be made in the xfce terminal?
