The config elements look ok.

If you haven't tried this combination already, would you be able to try
Control+F5 and Control+F6 - the windows key modifier mapping can be fiddly
on some desktops.

Unfortunately the patch that I submitted had the debug print statements
taken out.  Are you happy to insert debug print statements into remember.c? 
I'd be curious to know if the action is being called.  I can send you
another version of the patch if you'd prefer.
