Like others on the bug, mine has the key, but it's not active, even tho 
the window key (which I have mapped, logically, to various window and 
other kwin functions) is.

Thus the original post, since it obviously doesn't work for everyone.  
(FWIW, I could probably get it to work,, now that I know it's supposed to, 
if I bothered screwing with the config.  But it's not important enough to 
hassle it so I probably won't unless I get bored some day.)

(And if that was the case, then it would obscure the fact that it /really/ 
pointed at instead of to, say, a malware site with a bugs.kd- (which in plain text ends up with 
an escaped numeric-code for the goofy e, so it's easy to spot), while 
having a title pretending to say  Not so important for a 
link claiming to be a bug link, but if you have a paypal account and get a 
mail claiming to be from paypal, for instance...  Tho if someone was 
clever they could still post links to a "bugzilla" with "patches" posted 
for problems that instead downloaded and installed botware or some such.  
Which is my point.  With plain text, I see the raw URL and can thus see if 
there's any funny stuff going on with it.  If the poster deems it 
necessary to say what it is, fine, but I can see the address and decide 
whether I trust it either way.)
