First of all, make sure no signals get 'devoured'. Isn't CTRL+mouse-down
related to the default ALT+mouse-down, which enables you to drag windows in
your desktop? CTRL+F1 and CTRL+F11 might be allocated some of the KDE
build-in mappings, e.g. CTRL+ALT+F1 for another separate session. Can you
confirm that the CTRL key works in some program or another? Does it work in
the terminal? Can you ALT+mouse-down to move windows? In KDE, you can also
go to:

(Launcher/Kicker? ->) Control Center -> Regional and Accessibility ->
Keyboard Shortcuts

Can you see any conflicts that may have arisen? Perhaps you can try to
change some behaviour as you desire. I already have some conflicts myself
(due to kde-XMMS in particular). Also be sure to check for accelerator
conflicts in the Python applications themselves.

Hope it helps,
