I think its not a regression, but rather a problem of the action
itself. The action is actually a KActionMenu and I think thats why the
shortcut dialog does not show it. I'd like to move the action away
from Esc since I end up hitting that often once too much when trying
to escape out of the kate search bar. As it is, the only way I see
this to happen is introduce a "Stop All" action with the Shortcut and
have a "Stop Jobs" KActionMenu which lists all the jobs and does
nothing itself. This means instead of the single entry we have now
there's be two menu and toolbar entries. Or alternatively someone
dives into kdelibs trying to figure out why the shortcuts dialog does
not allow to configure a shortcut for KActionMenu.
