bug#62962: 28.2; blocked key combinations in macos

thanks for walking through all of that with me.  i went back and tested another mac window manager app, rectangle (https://rectangleapp.com/), and it turns out with the same key combination that it works with the stock build of emacs.  so it looks like magnet's method of moving windows, and not the key combination (thanks to alan for the correction), is the culprit here.

again thanks for all the help,

Aha, I wasn't aware.  It seems like they actually just build a stock
Emacs, so I suppose that is fine, then.

Thanks for testing.

Is your suspicion here that the keys never reach Emacs, or is it that
the special feature of the "Magnet" program that doesn't work like it
