I just noticed the KHTMLView is actually never associated to the 
actionCollection() after those actions are added, so there's no wonder it 
doesn't work...

The attached is apparently enough to make it behave as expected everywhere
(i.e also in form elements of khtmlview, and in subframes).

I wonder if this could be commited to branch despite release freeze?
it certainly look like a very ennoying bug.
