I also sometimes get spurious "new shortcut" notifications, especially from 
Klipper and Amarok IIRC. This is on all computers that I use (three). Without 
this issue I'd be in favor of leaving them on, but yeah, let the specialists 
I wouldn't bother with a configuration option because nobody will find it 
(except maybe distributors) - how do you know that something is there if it 
doesn't tell you so. And you will have to fix the spurious notifications if 
there is a configuration option. Or maybe fixing them is a good idea anyway :)
