Description:    KUbuntu 9.04
Release:        9.04


Embedded applications, such as Okular embedded within Konqueror cause overlapping shortcuts and rather than a hierarchy of shortcuts allowing one application to use the shortcut, neither application's shortcut key is used.  The following message pops up and drastically reduces the power of KDE:

Ambiguous Shortcut Detected
The key sequence 'F5' is ambiguous. Use 'Configure Shortcuts'
from the 'Settings' menu to solve the ambiguity.
No action will be triggered.

Please fix this, either by setting application-application maps allowing
us to specify which application wins the shortcut overlap, or by simply
making the embedded application win, or the surrounding application win.
I realize it's a tricky decision, but please make it.  Losing the key
sequence for both applications, especially since they often do the same
things, is baaaaaaad.  Much of my justification of being with KDE is
because I can be so darn productive, and shortcuts are a huge part of
it.

Thanks,
Matt
