I tried it on straight up Debian and I couldn't reproduce the odd behavior I got on Linux Mint. 

I was able to bypass the odd behavior by changing my startup command to. 

"nemo -n ~/"

I don't know what the -n is doing exactly, maybe this is a no-brainer thing I should have been doing anyway.

assume an .xbindkeysrc of...

  ctrl+alt + e

So, if you hit ctrl+alt+e, and then you hit ctrl+l and change the address to say... smb:// (another computer) you get an error message.  But if you manually type on the command line "nemo" and follow the rest of the procedure, you will connect normally. 

More interestingly, if you connect to a file share through traditional means, and then open a file manager via xbindkeys and attempt to click and drag a file from the server to your local machine's (the xbindkeys opened window), you will get an operation not allowed error. 

Wierd, huh?  I didn't realize that it was a problem with xbindkeys for the longest time.  I thought it was just a random Linux Mint bug. 

Any ideas?
