That's Command+q, not Alt+q. In *step, Alt is something different.

By default, Command is bound to the left Alt key, and Alternate is bound
to the right.

For 104-key ("Windows") keyboards, you can bind the Windows keys to be
Command and leave Alternate to be the Alt keys -- this can be done in
Preferences. Works nicely.
