I have kde3.0.2 and cvs, they both work

Do you have effectively the botton aside the label 'current shorcut key' with 
the content [F11] (without the brackets)

Maybe you should first try to associate a key to a working 'icon'.
Reasons why it doesn't work could be:
	1.Even if you click on the new menu created, nothing is happening (then you 
know where the problem is :) )
	2.Your system shortcuts is already using F11 (check in kontrol panel), if so 
you'll need to release this key for your own purpose
	3.The window that has the focus is also using the F11 key (for instance with 
kwrite), and it catches the key and keeps it for itself. (go and change the 
source code! :p)

Good luck :)
