BTW, with the four-modifiers keyboard scheme ctrl-esc is already bound to 
close document (ctrl-w in the normal keybindings) and the alternate 
keybinding of meta-ctrl-pause doesn't work. I have similar issues with other 
meta key combo's like meta-scroll lock to lock the desktop. This all worked 
fine in KDE 3.3, but in 3.4 it's broken. The keys that don't work all involve 
combinations of keys without any alphanumerical keys, like scroll lock and 
pause. meta-menu to open the K menu is also broken, which is extra annoying 
since meta without extra keys got disabled in 3.4 because of maintainability 
issues, or so I gathered.

I can't test at home since HP's SUSE 9.1 there has other keyboard funkyness 
(deadkeys and compose don't work for example), so I can only try at work 
where I don't have a debug version. Can anyone else reproduce and/or explain?
