[Bug 874071] [NEW] numeric keyboard shortcuts don't work

Public bug reported:

I want to use Alt+KP_Subtract and Alt+KP_Add to change volume (I have no
volume keys). However when I try to grab those shortcuts they appear as
Alt++ and Alt+-. In other words, when grabbing shortcuts KDE mistakenly
sees KP_Subtract and KP_Add as the normal plus and minus keys which are
completely unrelated.

If I manually edit ~/.kde/share/config/kglobalshortcutsrc to add the
shortcuts (as KP_Subtract and KP_Add) they do not work either.
