Shift+Home, Shift+End not selecting text in UBUNTU

I Installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 11.04 on my new SSD, and discovered that pressing Shift+Home or Shift+End didnt do as i was expecting (select text to beginning of line, select text to end of line from cursor position). a quick google search didnt solve my problem so i started digging about...
Eventually i found the solution:
In the Keyboard Layout Options, there is a setting called
"Shift with numeric keypad works as in MS Windows" <- Tick this box and it all works fine :)
