I think I'm getting closer. Changing kglobalaccelrc to use
Alt+Shift+Backtab, the shortcut works and KGlobalAccell doesn't grap the
keyboard anymore (or rather it release it). So this problem will
probably only happen for default global shortcuts, that don't work due
to X11-stuff.


You will have good luck and overcome many hardships.
