I have reported this as bug 162144 http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162144

This is based off of JuK global shortcuts, but only with multimedia keys 
(which I've had to manually xmodmap in on startup).  Do you use multimedia 
keys or do you have shortcuts assigned to keysyms obtained using xmodmap?

My workaround for now has been to disable the assertion. :(

Unfortunately every time I startup I have to go to JuK and re-select the 
multimedia keys global shortcut, I assume related to this bug but I'm not sure
