Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.5.4)
Switching to previous desktop does not work with specified shortcut: WinKey (Meta)+Shift+Tab
Steps to Reproduce:
1) In multiple virtual desktops setting, virtual desktops, "Switching" tab, go to Actions for Desktop Switching and set "Meta+Shift+Tab" shortcut for "Switch to Previous Desktop"
2) press this shortcut
switching to prev desktop
switch to next desktop with Meta+Tab works;
Still in 4.6
It seems, that kglobalshortcuts systemsettings module can't set "Meta+Shift+Backtab" for "Switch to Previous Desktop=Meta+Shift+Backtab,none,Przełącz na poprzedni pulpit"
First of all, it sets "Tab", not "Backtab", secondly, it assigns shortcut to previous activity, not previous desktop.

Make global shortcuts involving shift+tab work
When entering (ctrl,alt,meta)+shift+tab as a new shortcut
KKeySequenceWidget gets "backtab" as the key pressed but records "tab".
kglobalaccel gets the keypress event as "backtab" which is correct but
only triggers shortcuts with "backtab" in them and such shortcuts are
not possible for the user to enter.
This commit makes kglobalaccel look for both tab and backtab when
triggered, same as Qt does. By triggering on both it also avoids
breaking peoples alt+shift+tab on upgrade.
