Bug in xfconf-query regarding setting keys shortcuts?
# Let's query some keyboard shortcut
xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -p '/xfwm4/default/<Alt><Shift>Tab' ; echo $?
cycle_reverse_windows_key
0
# So far so good.
# Let's remove that shortcut.
xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -p '/xfwm4/default/<Alt><Shift>Tab' -r
# Behavior when trying shortcut is correct: shortcut no longer works, which is intended.
# But xfconf-query does not say so:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -p '/xfwm4/default/<Alt><Shift>Tab' ; echo $?

Interestingly, content of xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml appears correct.

  <property name="&lt;Alt&gt;&lt;Shift&gt;Tab" type="empty"/>
