This is seriously odd.

IIUC, KDE3 uses X11 to decode the keys.  I didn't realize that KDE4 used 
  QT to do it.  Perhaps this is a misleading error message.

There is one thing you might look at which I have to do because I have a 
REAL IBM keyboard (you either love the click keyboard or you hate it) 
which only has 101 keys.

In the Control Center (now named System Settings in KDE4) go to:

	Regional & Language -> Keyboard Layout

In the "Layout" tab, check "Enable keyboard layouts".  Then see if you 
can find your keyboard in the drop down list.
