The Keymaps node of the Emacs manual explains that `C-c b' or `C-c B'
would avoid that:

Any ideas how to override it?  I tried
to do it by:
putting:
 (global-set-key [(control c) (control b)] 'bury-buffer)
in my
"my-c-mode-common-hook"

and then doing:
(add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook 'my-c-mode-common-hook)

but no dice (I also have a (global-set-key [(control c) (control b)]
'bury-buffer) in the main part of .emacs)

If you want to override the local key binding in C mode, you need to
call local-set-key instead of global-set-key.
