Ctrl-Alt-Shift+letter shortcuts should not be used with MS Windows because they are used to obtain national diacritical charcters (for example LCtrl-LAlt-Shift-o generates oacute), besides other programs on host systems could use them internally so some functionality is not directly possible. Better way is to use one master key - F9 for example - which invokes a menu from which we can call special functions. Pressing this key twice would generate this key for remote system. This way we could not loose any key combinations functionality on remote site.
