Are you running xbindkeys or any other script/program that affects X? This
may be happening without your awareness. In KDE, all shortcuts are globally
centralised and are globally valid, although some are application-specific
and require that the particular application grabs focus.

Is the above observation a rant? By all means, I find the keyboard
accelerators mechnism in KDE to be far more flexible (and thus powerful)
than that which I have in GNOME (I use Ubuntu several times a week). Have
you looked at the settings under Kopete yet? Is it active in the background
and accessible from the system tray (Windows terminology)?

Hope this leads somewhere, despite being a shot in the dark.
