it does exactly that since GNOME 2.18 or 2.20. if your 'Take Screenshot'
menu item is not doing that it's either your distribution's fault for
messing around with the default desktop entry file, or yours for doing
the same. :-)

the default desktop entry for gnome-screenshot uses the --interactive
switch which pops up a dialog for setting up the screenshot; the key
combinations keep working automagically without requiring manual
intervention by default - but you can tweak them to include the
--interactive command line switch (which will, as a bonus, take into
account the other arguments you pass on the command line).
