That's it.  =:^)  As I said, I start kde from a CLI login using startx, 
thus eliminating any need for a *dm, so that should work here.  But you're 
right, that's not likely to work at the *DM, no user logged in.

Meanwhile, thanks.  It'd have taken me quite some time to find it there, 
as I'd have looked in the keyboard shortcuts options, not under hardware, 
input-devs, keyboard.  Now that I actually went and looked, tho, hopefully 
I'll remember that it's counter-intuitively under hardware.
