Using a German keyboard layout, it is no longer possible to enter a "}"
anywhere in Octave.
The reason is that "}" is entered by holding "AltGr" and entering "0". An
alternative for the "AltGr" key is holding "Ctrl" and "Alt" at the same time.
Alt+Ctrl+0 happens to be a newly introduced shortcut to switch to the previous

It is possible to manually bind that shortcut to different keys. But it would
probably be very unexpected for users if they were unable to enter "}" with
the default settings.

Could we change the default key binding for that shortcut?
