That's ok. 
Perhaps set Krusader instead of Nautilus, though, because
there are people switching from KDE, and i don't believe there are
many Nautilus geeks using Nautilus keyboard shortcuts. After all,
Nautilus is clearly mouse orientated.

Krusader, however, is doing some details differently than TC, 
and since i use all three (well, i'm rarely in windows though)
i dare to say, better. For example one key (F9) for renaming,
since it's such an important action.

(What do you need ? )

I got some german USB and some german (old) serial keyboards.
The '.' key has ':' as second assignement, so Ctrl+Shift+. is 
(visually) equal to Ctrl+:  
I can give you the key-code (just can't remember a tools name)
if needed. On these keyboards, Ctrl+Shift+. is doing nothing at all.
Ctrl+. works.

In my posting i mentioned Ctrl+Shift+. was not working too on a laptop with 
native US keyboard Maybe because I didn't update gcmd on this machine 
for a while ? With latest SVN, both shortcuts work fine there now.
There, '.' has the second assignment '>'.

All machines run xorg 7.1.0-11.
xorg.conf of the PC:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "USB-Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "de,es,us"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:nocaps"
