Version: 1.9.6 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (feisty) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu14.1)

OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.20-16-generic
When I save a keyboard shortcut - in this case Shift+S to mark messages as being spam it doesn't remember the setting and I have to reset it at each logon - is there a way around this? (I also tried a couple of other 'free' (ie not already assigned shortcuts) but the same thing happens.
So to clarify: You can not change any shortcut under under Settings->Configure Shortcuts? This seems strange to me, as KMail uses the standard shortcut dialog from KDE. What about other KDE applications? Does changing shortcuts there work?
Do you have write permission to your kmailrc file in ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc?
Reports about keyboard shortcuts being lost:
I can confirm the same behavior, but it's somehow strange. When I quit kmail, it forgets the defined shortcut for 'Mark as spam'. I also tried shortcut for another action ('About kmail') and I can still use it.
KDE: 3.5.8 "release 22.3"
KMail: 1.9.6 (enterprise 20070831.706792)
Oh, I misread the report, it seems to be about the same issue as bug 137484.
