In KWin you can hit Alt+F5.  Maybe GNOME's WM does the same?
Is there a way to configure global shortcuts somewhere in GNOME?

FYIk, KWin also has (by default):

  Alt+F1 - Pop-up K menu
  Alt+F2 - Bring up Run dialog
  Alt+F3 - Pop-up currently-focused window's window controls (maximize,
           minimize, resize, move, shade, and all sorts of other goodies)
  Alt+F4 - close a winodw

This may've been Windows-influenced, I'm not sure.  (In which case, again,
GNOME may also mimick...)
