This looks like a KDE4 bug.

Looks like some bad key mapping going on.

Hope they get it fixed, because a lot of people are going to be upset if it is not.

I'm pretty sure this is a bug. Seeing as Intrepid is still in Alpha,
this shouldn't be too unexpected. Does anything appear in dmesg when
you press those keys?
