Dear Maintainer,

The initial bug reported should be now fixed:

My bug is actually a combination of two different issues, both
upstream, and both different from the one initially reported here.

One is this: which is
still under discussion upstream.

The other is not a bug, just an undocumented feature:

Dumping more information in case someone else runs into this bug:

chmod -w ~/.config/kglobalshortcutsrc doesn't work, the file still
manages to get overwritten.

Making a small shell script in .config/autostart-scripts that would
sed away the offending input in ~/.config/kglobalshortcutsrc also
doesn't work, because the substitution apparently happens after the
script is executed.

In any case, this bug can be closed. Maybe a different one can be
opened for the Alt+F1 shortcut.

Best regards,

Vivia Nikolaidou
