https://askubuntu.com/questions/62654/disable-global-keyboard-shortcuts-for-specific-application
I posted this question in stackoverflow expecting loads of excellent answers but got none.
My personal solution is currently:
Install very light weight wm like 'twm': (sudo apt-get install twm)
Kick off a concurrent X session with no wm: xinit /usr/bin/xterm -- :2
Switch to new X session: control-alt-F8
Start twm in xterm within new session: twm &
Run program, enjoy programs shortcuts and be happy, switching back to other X session with control-alt-F7
