Ups. I guess you misunderstood something. I have no idea how to solve that 
problem. And more critical: I have no idea if my analysis is correct. Until 
someone with qt background confirms don't take that for granted. It looks 
plausible, so much is true.

If i found the real problem the easiest solution - for someone not involved in 
qt development - seems to be adding some Flag to qt widgets telling them 
'You're a widget, but some kind of toplevel widget, so stop shortcut 
propagation here'. But i think everyone inside of trolltech disagrees.

And how to solve it as an qt outsider. ask david? Thiago? yellow pages?
