Handling conflicting keyboard shortcuts

Sorry if this is common knowledge.  I'm pretty new to Wine, and have been 
working on getting Visual Foxpro working in it.  

One problem is conflicting keyboard shortcuts between Windows/VFP and 
XWindows.  For instance, Ctrl+F4 to close a window.  This keystroke gets 
intercepted by my window manager which throws me to desktop 4.  VFP uses 
Ctrl+F2 to activate the command window, but again, my window manager 
intercepts this and puts me on desktop 2.

There are lots of other examples.  I know I can make different key mappings 
in XWindows, but is there a strategy to handle this in Wine?  A Config file 
option perhaps?
