OK, two things.  Alt+e doesn't work either.  :-/  I didn't actually try 
it when you mentioned it (I had some tasks running that needed to finish 
uninterrupted, and later I forgot about it).  Also, ctrl+alt+bs doesn't 
work regardless how many times I trigger it (with ctrl+alt kept pressed 
or not.)

I should also mention that since I'm using Gentoo, this is all vanilla 
KDE and X.Org.  That's why I'm hoping someone here knows a solution, 
since there are no weird disto patches applied that could get in the way.
