> It may be that Mint "fixed" this already, but I think it's been more than a year already - why is it still not in Debian?! So I think it's a problem with something other than Caja itself - some Debian-specific hotkey-snatching subsystems or something. Maybe this problem was never even there in Mint. Either way, it's up to the developers to find out why is there a problem with Debian, but not with Mint.
Could you please test caja upstream and report back? Linux Mint is not upstream, the MATE project is.
And if it turns out that the bug is still present upstream, then you're barking up the wrong tree as Debian just packages most upstream software, we don't develop it.
Also, if turns out to be an upstream bug, then you should yell at the Linux Mint people to fix it.
And, no, it's not only up to the developers to figure what causes the bug. Both Mate and Debian are community-driven, so if you find a bug you would like to get fixed as a user, you should help developers with some testing which helps locate the issue.
The more information you provide, the faster can others fix your problem. Remember, many people here don't get paid for fixing these things, so they might as well say that they don't care about a bug if it takes too much effort to debug and fix it.
