Thanks but having some trouble with that.

That does not appear for me under C-h b and search for C-M-q.  What is
that command called?

C-h-c  doesn't know about it here either.

When I just use the keys you mention it gets confused with a call to
KDE and brings up the KDE control application.

Going to a text console and trying C-M-q while editing a shell script
say C-M-q is not defined.

Trying M-x reindent<spc><spc> etc  appears to bring the wrong thing as
well.  `reindent-then-newline-and-indent'
