No, C-M-<backspace> is by default bound to backward-kill-sexp.
I've killed by X server often :-/
Then I frobbed /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.
Such are the joys of unknown kbd mappings. I still fondly remember
the day when I, used to Sun keyboards which have separate Meta and
Alt keys, came to a PC running Unixware and olvwm. I typed a news
posting and then I hit M-q. Emacs disappeared. So I typed the news
posting again and then hit C-h k M-q to figure out why did Emacs
disappear. Emacs disappeared.
I was doing this in front of a friend's Emacs. He then said he never
uses M-q because he has F5. (His own keybinding.)
Sorry for the rant...
This line is not blank.
