You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I remapped caps-lock to "mod4" using .Xmodmap. So I have an additional
modifier key in favour of caps lock which I only activate by accident

This worked fine in KDE3 and even Gnome.

With KDE4 it stops working: The dialogs that are used to set up key-
combos for actions still insist on the caps lock key being "caps lock".
This is annoying since I can not use caps-lock as modifier anymore: I
used to have my desktops on "mod4-Fx" (with x being the number of the
desktop and mod4 actually being the caps-lock key).
