[PLUG] Linux Mint 17/Cinnamon remapped Del key

I was messing around in "Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard shortcuts" and
accidentally remapped my Del key to something.  I removed that mapping,
but the damage was already done in that it stole the map and now my Del
key doesn't work anywhere.

I've Googled around for a while now, and can NOT figure out how to fix
that.  I can't find a way to map Del in the GUI at all.  I have chosen
the English keyboard in "Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard layouts" and hit
"reset to default" but that didn't help.  I can't find a relevant
setting in either gconf or dconf or in some file someplace.

There are many Google hits, but as far as I can tell all are obsolete,
irrelevant to how this actually works in Linux Mint 17 and Cinnamon or both.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this or where those settings are in Linux
Mint 17/Cinnamon?
