In Applications - System Tools - System Settings, in the Hardware group, 
is a button for Keyboard. That has a tab for Shotcuts. One of those 
shortcuts is Launch Terminal, with the default setting of Ctrl+Alt+T. 
Down at the bottom it says, "To edit a shortcut, click the row and hold 
down the new keys or press Backspace to clear."

I haven't tried changing anything in there, but that might be worth a 
try for your key combination.
