This is just normal behaviour. You can disable this behaviour within the
Xfree Configuration file. (Option "DontZap" "boolean" ).
So there is nothing about it. It's just for the user/admin to configure X
so it doesn't react on the key combination. If you consider this as i flaw
i guess you can consider pressing ctrl-alt-del on the console, making the
machine reboot, a flaw as well ;-))
