One thing i would like to add.
In kde we have a central daemon that manages the global shortcuts for all kde
apps. Other apps talk to him by dbus.
This was done (afaik) because on the mac this behavious is a must. But i came
late to the party when the decisions were not only made but implemented. David
probably knows more than i do.
So in an ideal world qt apps running in a kde environment should use that
daemon too and under gnome register the global shortcuts directly (AFAIK gnome
has no such thing as a central daemon).
So this is really 5.1 material because if we try to solve it we should do it
