New patch attached.  I'm not using --enable-final, so I didn't test it in that 
respect, but the #undef is placed before any k*.h includes.

I can't reproduce this, but I'm not using the most recent qt-copy either.  Are 
you aware of other people having this problem too?  When you press and 
release the Alt key, does it activate the menu?  I'll keep looking to see if 
I can find where the problem is.  Not the easiest task when you can't 
reproduce it yourself, though...
