If you go to System Settings>Keyboard>Shortcuts>Custom Shortcuts and create a new shortcut using the Alt key Gnome will show you a warning dialogue telling you that Alt is mapped to 'Resize Window' and ask you if you would like to reassign it.

I had /apps/marco/general/mouse_button_modifier which was set to <alt>. I removed that value but it did not help, alt is still dragging windows around.

I have changed the setting in gconf-editor /apps/metacity/general/mouse_button_modifier; I have also disabled the setting in compiz manager. I also ran the command given earlier in this thread. After all this a <Alt> left mouse button still moves the window.
All help appreciated.
