I realize that, but they certainly seemed related (though, it's not "numbers
for links" - it's whatever the shortcut key is defined as; perhaps if no
shortcuts are defined, it uses the tab-order).  Now that I look at it more
closely, I see that it's not a function of how long I depress the key, as
it occurs on release, so can't be the sticky keys.  Now I find myself in
the situation where HTML in mail does this, but it never happens in
Konqueror itself...
