Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

Release: Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala
Version: KDE 4.3.2
Expecting: assingning key XF86Mail to program kontact
Happening instead:
I assigned in KDE Menu Editor the key XF86Mail to the menu entry "Kontact". During the assignment I have to press the key which is recognized and displayed as "Lauch Mail". After saving the the setting I tried to start kontact using this key but nothing happend.

I used the program xev to find out some details about the hotkey:

KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x5400001,
    root 0x10b, subw 0x5400002, time 1899561, (31,35), root:(35,60),
    state 0x10, keycode 223 (keysym 0x1008ff19, XF86Mail), same_screen YES,
    XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 163                                  
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:                                           
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:                                         
    XFilterEvent returns: False 

Other hotkeys, e.g. for starting the browser (XF86WWW) are working.
