Well, it works on my Debian box with LXDE/Openbox.

Apparently on Fedora though you also have to set DontZap to false in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (create it if it doesn't exist):

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "DontZap" "false"

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier      "Keyboard Defaults"
    MatchIsKeyboard "yes"
    Option          "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

Restart your X server obvioulsy after doing this.
