I've observed similar behavior, but maddeningly, it's *only* affecting
Previous and Next. The Play/Pause, Stop, Mute, Volume Up/Down, and the
little "musical note" multimedia keys on my keyboard work properly
everywhere, whether Amarok has focus or not. When Amarok is focused, the
Previous and Next keys also work.

When Amarok is not focused, though, Previous and Next do nothing.
Play/Pause does play/pause, Stop does stop, and the "music note" key is
mapped to toggling the OSD, which also works whether Amarok's focused or

Not sure how to fix this one. Amarok does correctly detect the keys when
focused, and during configuration it easily grabs the keypresses when I
set up the Global Shortcuts.
