It did mine.  :-)

Well, that seems more "logical" than intuitive.  That was about the fourth 
category that I looked in to find the keyboard settings.  I can see why you 
differentiate between "hardware" and "interaction", but at the moment, the 
user is given multiple choises and has to guess where they might find a given 
group of settings.  

I think overwhelmingly a good job has been done and in fact I find the current 
KControl to be one of the move useful variations that has presented itself in 
the recent KControl-organization-of-the-week business, but this was the one 
thing that stood out as counterintuitive.
