yeah, I know about that one; it didn't make the cut as a release blocker
because it's not actually present on the KDE or GNOME desktops (they
have their own keyboard config tools). But it's a head-slapper indeed. I
don't know if anyone's actually figured out what the bug is there yet. I
*think* it's a case of some underlying change pulling the rug out from
under s-c-k, but not sure.
