Yes, apparently, they have done it, despite all the Linux fanatics shouting this would be a regression just to please newbies that are not familiar with it...
The relevant extract from the Release Notes reads:
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace is now disabled, to reduce issues experienced by users who accidentally trigger the key combo. Users who do want this function can enable it in their xorg.conf, or via the command dontzap –disable.
Well, at least there's a positive since you can install an additional package that will re-enable this powerful key combination to restart the X server when needed.
Just to make it completely clear: the dontzap package is NOT installed by default, which means you will have to install it from the depots before enabling it!
