But thats totally different from the change that John did. That new
shortcut doesn't help  any app, except those that already use the
KStandard::fullscreen action (and I'm not sure how much actually do use
that). Apart from the problem of breaking apps so late in the release
cycle and this is technically not even a bugfix.
