You are right with both.
My fingers just hit the wrong key i meant C-[.
But it is not enough that you can press ctrl and altGr together. As Juanma 
Barranquero pointed out it has to be in a particular order so that C-[ works. 
Remember [ is produced by AltGr-9 so for C-[ on a german keyboard one would 
have to press rightCtrl-AltGr-9. Not matter what other say i find it almost 
impossible to do.

Well not exactly at once but together. (I should speak and read more englisch 
to avoid those anoying mistakes which just confuse others :-).
I think it is very hard to press rightCtrl-AltGr-9 together to get C-[. But 
that was just a example see my other mail for more.
