I have a media keyboard that provides Volume Up, Volume Down and Mute
keys. They map to XF86AudioRaiseVolume, XF86AudioLowerVolume and
XF86AudioMute respectively. While Raise and Lower trigger an OSD
(through kmilo), XF86AudioMute does not. Deactivating kmilo leaves the
same situation, I can use Raise and Lower for shortcuts in kwin
(controlling the master channel). XF86AudioMute can be assigned as a
shortcut, but pressing it does not trigger the action, regardless if it
is mute in kmix or play in amarok and whatever else. This might be
related to bug #58751 although that might be an issue with the sound
system and not so much with the shortcut, since it shows an OSD in that
bug report.

I have the suspicion that the key is caught by some other process and
not passed on to kde for evaluation, but I am not sure.
