Trivial questions about CNTL-ALT-DEL and CNTL-ALT-BACKSPACE

I've just been installing 7.2-RELEASE/amd64 on a fresh/wiped system
that I plan to use as my future "main" workstation.
Anyway, I've already noticed a couple of things that seem to be different
from prior release that I need to ask about, i.e.:
1) It appears that CNTL-ALT-DEL now causes a shutdown/reboot. (I don't
know what release this new feature started in... I only just noticed it
now.) Anyway, I'd like to know how I can disable this particular bit of
functionality. How do I do that?
2) Prior versions of X (Xorg?) allowed CNTL-ALT-BACKSPACE to cause an
immediate shutdown of the X server, but now, that doesn't see to work
anymore. How can I (re-)enable this functionality?
Thanks in advance for any answers.
P.S. Please send replies to the list. Otherwise, I may never see them due
to my draconian and haphazard local spam filtering. Thanks.
