Disabling Ctrl-Alt-Backspace

After being reminded the hard way yet again that C-S-Backspace in Emacs invokes the very handy kill-whole-line function, but that C-M-Backspace, while uncomfortably similar to that key-chord, does something very different, I have now officially added to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "DontZap" "True"
EndSection

to prevent me from accidentally murdering my X server at the worst possible times.

Hehe! Been there, done that. But way earlier because I'm such a lousy typist =/. Hey! Sweet feature with autogenerated preview!
