The bugreport also mentions the "-" key for iconify...

I had a quick look and also found shift-1 and shift-2 that could
conflict with text-input (they send commands directly to chess engine 1
or 2).

I would suggest to move shift-[1,2] to ctrl-[1,2]. Perhaps we can move
"." to "Ctrl+.".

Also, do we need the "-" key? I think "iconify" should be a task for the
window manager and we shouldn't even be implementing this. So I would
say, we remove the iconify function.
