Press Ctrl+Shift+V. You can have any program open, on the desktop, or be anywhere.

The Klipper menu opens. Ctrl+Shift+V is a global shortcut for Klipper and it overrides all program specific actions for this shortcut.

It's very annoying trying to paste into Konsole.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Press Ctrl+Shift+V. You can have any program open, on the desktop, or be anywhere.

Expected Results:  
Usability should be improved. Program specific shortcuts should be respected.

KDE 4.7.97
Klipper 0.9.7

Pushed by jekyllwu into branch 'KDE/4.8'.

Do not set default values for four global shortcuts.

This make them less intrusive for users of other applications, and
klipper now behaves effectively the same for a fresh account as before
BKO 259539 is fixed. The down side is there are no more recommended

I just ran into this same issue in KDE4.8 RC2.  I am not sure that the correct solution is not to set klipper actions.  Someone should decide what these are and they should be on by default, IMO.  But why one would choose CNTL+Shift+V as the default shortcut for an action in klipper, as it will always conflict with the PASTE action in konsole?
