This is a regular problem.  The keybindings are in the feel.  If you want
to avoid all keybindings within the window manager (rather worth it,
actually, if you;re using Emacs: almost everything is bound in that!),
then you should use (or edit according to your preferences) feel.ICCCM.
Alternatively, you can change the keybindings in the feel you use.

Much more info about this is in the FAQ, under the "customizing" section.
