Okay, weird stuff going on. I talked to Jon yesterday and he verified that he was unable to type any Cmd keys, for example Cmd-A, Cmd-C, Cmd-X, Cmd-Z, Cmd-Q.  Hence Alan reopened #13100.

testnsview confirmed that none of these worked.

So I've committed patches that solve this for testnsview, and when I test in Xamarin Studio I can confirm that I can now use Cmd-Q, Cmd-C, and Cmd-X in the property editor.  But what's weird is that Cmd-A still does not work there.  It works in the plain gtk test program testnsview.

So, I'm reopening this one as I close #13100.

(also, Cmd-Z has never worked before so that's unrelated. I have another patch that fixes Cmd-Z).
