Disabling help in GNOME?

Sometimes, when I have my laptop, well, on my lap, I accidentally hit the F1 key when I really am aiming to hit the Escape key. I dislike Help popping up, regularly. In vain, I looked for a way to do this in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. I gave up, and thought maybe removing yelp might help. It doesn’t.

removing yelp didn't help in gnome

Is there any way I can disable F1 == help in GNOME?

    Start gconf-editor, then in
    /apps/gnome-terminal/keybindings find the key “help” and change the value from F1 to something else. A good option is to make it F12.
