There are a number of KAction issues that have shown up in the last 9 months 
or so, especially related to KParts and other embedded objects...  In 
December I wrote a patch to alleviate many of these problems by removing all 
duplicate information when actions and shortcuts are shared between objects 
or created based off of a "template" collection.  As far as I tested it, it 
worked, but due to the extent which action and accel bugs create general 
annoyance in the developer community *grin*, I didn't want to commit until it 
was more thoroughly tested it.  However, I didn't have the time to keep up 
with patches to HEAD causing conflicts...

couple other willing developers could also see if it works for them for a
