global shortcuts in KDE4 (as well as in KDE3) don't work when drop-down
(menu or combobox) is active.
E.g. if I start typing something in Dolhpin address bar (or firefox) the
drop down with choices appear and I try to e.g. switch keyboard layout with
Ctrl+Alt+K or  enable/disable actions in klipper with Ctrl+Alt+X it does not
Is this working "as designed" because of some limitations or it's a bug in
shortcut handling?
