Tab-key and p-key not working for bash-completion on XFCE

A bizarre bug redirects tab and the 'p' key with XFCE. You need a modified copy of:

If you have not modified that file, you can download a properly modified copy at: xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml

Replace the copy in $HOME/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml

Or, you can manually edit this file and change the following line
<property name="&lt;Super&gt;Tab" type="string" value="switch_window_key"/> 

to this
<property name="&lt;Super&gt;Tab" type="empty"/>

and remove the line
<property name="&lt;Super&gt;p" type="string" value="xfce4-display-settings --minimal"/>

then restart your session.
