I also installed the release candidate early in the mid/end of January, 
meaning i upgraded from 4.1 to the pre release. But my global shortcuts, 
assigned to an multimedia key, stopped working immediately.
The mysterious thing for me, is that my amarok 1.4.10 uses the multimedia keys 
very well, when assigned as global shortcut. 
IIRC, kde4 switched from using dcop to dbus. I would expect, that amarok 
1.4.10 uses only dcop. So when the global amarok 1.4.10 shortcuts are still 
working in 4.2, there must be a compatibility layer or something. Maybe that 
this compatibility layer is incompatible with 4.2s dbus? ;-)
