 Ctrl+Alt+Erase does not work on 11.3.0 on XO-1.5s.

 This is a problem for OLPC Australia. We use Ctrl+Alt+Erase as a quick way
 to restart Sugar when things go wrong (and especially with children, that
 is inevitable). We include this keybinding in our training, so its removal
 is a regression for us.

 It's also very useful for development and testing.
