It's not a "problem" either with window managers nor Linux - the alt-mouse  
behaviour is standard and well established; it's a problem with the Gimp

I don't have a windows key. I do have an AltGr key but even so, generally  
I'd like the window moving functions of the window manager to stay under  
my left thumb where they've been for a decade now.
