The shortcuts have absolutely nothing to do with Akonadi or any of the 
other things that got added to KMail.

We didn't force you to upgrade to KDE SC 4.4. My advice for non-
developers is to use the version of KDE SC that was originally included 
with your distribution because this version usually has been tested very 
well by the distribution. Another general advice is to avoid .0 
releases. In an ideal world where beta releases and release candidates 
are extensively tested by lots of people this would be different. But, 
as a matter of fact, beta releases and release candidates are tested by 
very few people. Therefore many problems first show up in the .0 release 
when suddenly a lot of people start using it.
