Binary package hint: kde

A Hardy install was updated to Intrepid 8.10 and it was noted that
previous hotkeys were inactive. Specifically Alt-Shift-A to invoke

The System Settings keyboard configuration was used to remove the
keybindings from khotkeys and kde Menu Editor. Alt-Shift-K was also
removed from konqueror. These changes were applied, System Settings
exited and then re-entered to ensure that the bindings had gone. They
had. The system was logged out and restarted. Sytem Settings were
checked again - both keybindings were still absent.

Using the Menu Editor (right-click on K), the konsole was located under
System and an attempt to change the shortcut key under the Advanced tab
was made. A warning window from the KDE Menu Editor reported that "The
key Alt+Shift+A can not be used here because it is already in use."
Using another shortket did not produce an error.

On re-checking the keybindings with System Settings, the Alt+Shift+A
keybinding had been unexpectedly replaced.

Not only but also, the Alt-Shift-K keybinding had been replaced.

It does not appear to be possible to re-allocate keybindings from KDE
under Hardy to KDE4.1 under Intrepid because of this issue, and the
original keybindings no longer function.
