This is the Linux 6.0.1 version.

Shift-Alt-9 results in a beep with the message `You used a
Command or Control Key combination which is not defined to
do anything' (Hint to WRI's UI people: it's always nice to
have the text in message boxes like the one in Help -> Why
the Beep? be selectable, so that one does not need to copy
it by hand like I just did ;-) )

Also, from what I can tell NumLock does not have an effect
on this.
