Most likely, the problem you are seeing is due something else snagging this key combination before Mathematica sees it. Take a look at the Keyboard Shortcuts tab in the Keyboard preference pane. Scroll down to the keyboard shortcuts for Mission Control and make sure ctrl 6 is not selected as the keyboard shortcut to switch desktops.
