Ok, it turns out this might be related to xmlgui and how konqueror uses
the framework. The ambiguity is only triggered here for the konqueror
instance that started via session-managed when logging into KDE. The
special thing about that konqueror instance is that it has 3 tabs open
which pointed to urls when I closed KDE (and the session got saved).

When I now try to hit Ctrl+F in the currently shown tab I get the
ambiguity warning. As soon as I switch to a different tab, I don't get
it anymore (nothing happens, but thats because there's no page loaded,
which is a different bug).

David, any idea on this one? It seems as if all the tabs have a khtml
instance and all of them have their shortcuts registered which leads to
the ambiguity.
