It would appear that on Dec 28, Joe(theWordy)Philbrook did say:

It just came to my attention that this may be a kde konsole related.
Because if I use mc from one of the 6 virtual consoles ( tty[1-6] )
the shortcuts work in intrepid. It's only when I'm running from a
konsole under kde that these shortcuts fail...

But I still think it's a kubuntu issue (not KDE) because these shortcut's
work in my other linux distributions. And while intrepid is my only KDE 4
based linux, I'm getting the same pattern with kubuntu 8.4 where the
shortcuts work in mc under the virtual consoles, But NOT in a Konsole
under kde 3.5.9...
