If I click one of those buttons in KDE 4 applications, they are 
"recognized".  For example, clicking the "back" button over a text entry 
widget, Qt changes focus to that widget.  Or left-clicking a menu and 
then "back"-clicking a menu item, activates that item.  That means Qt 
sees the buttons.  And of course Qt is guaranteed to see the normal 
mouse buttons (the scroll wheel for example; we know Qt supports it) but 
I'm still not able to map the scroll wheel to anything in KDE's 
"Configure shortcuts".
