I did not ask for Ctrl-. and Ctrl-, to be changed. In Konqueror both
that shortcut and Ctrl-Tab work. Therefore those who use Ctrl-. and
Ctrl-, would never have noticed any change.

Unintuitiveness and inconsistency within an application suite _is_ a
bug, go ask a Blender user about that. Different from foobar
application is not a bug, go ask a Gimp user about that. The fact is,
some KDE apps have both Ctrl-. & Ctrl-, and also Ctrl-Tab. Dolphin
does not. That is inconsistency.
