When I attempt to set key bindings in Gnome that use the Alt key, Gnome also includes the Meta key. For instance when trying to set a keybinding to Ctrl-Alt-E and pressing only those keys, Gnome shows Ctrl-Alt-Meta-E. This causes no direct loss of functionality or anything as it seems the Alt key is sending both the Alt and the Meta signals. How can I get rid of this extra Meta signal?

Also I have tried this with both the left and right Alt keys.
