I disabled my Delete key, Oops.(Linux)

Ok yesterday I was editing a few shortcuts, in the Keyboard Shortcut dialog under preferences in Gnome. I wanted to disable one shortcut, instead of using backspace I hit delete. That actually assigned the delete as the shortcut key instead of disabling it. So then I hit backspace which disabled the shortcut; but, now my delete key did not work. Ok, now I am annoyed and finding out how much I really use my delete key. The fix was simple, I made sure delete is not assigned to a shortcut. Then all I had to do was reboot, that solved it.
