If you don't know, alt+d is used to delete a word forward. But now it is just typing 'd' in the terminal, as if I've not pressed 'alt'

This key combination stopped working since a week, I have done no upgrades/installs wrt to gnome-terminal/gnome package.

What I've tried:
1. Installed few more terminals to check if it works in other..
tty = Works! hence alt+d keys are okey.
Konsole = Works.
Guake = Does NOT work (gnome based terminal??)
2. It works on my friend's machines.
3. I've tried un/checking terminal -> Edit->Keyboard Shortcuts. Enable menu access/shortcuts. Not worked!
4. Saw any key bindings present. Nothing interesting.

Who is eating alt?:confused:
