Input Actions - PrintScreen does not launch ksnapshot

Tim, Darrell,

  PrintScreen no longer launches ksnapshot. This used to work fine a month or so
ago. All of the settings are still properly configured in Regional &
Accessibility -> Input Actions -> Preset Actions -> Print Screen/Print Window.

  How do we find out what causes this to fail?  I have noticed this problem in
on both my virtualbox test boxes (used to work there also) and in the actual
boxes with R14 on them.

  I have even chosen the PrintScreen button again to reconfigure (the input box
properly recognizes PrintScreen as being pressed), but then hitting print screen
on the keyboard does nothing.

  Perhaps this is somehow related to choosing 'Control Center' from the Settings
submenu doing nothing as well. In each case, Alt+F2 ksnapshot/kcontol launches
fine. Anybody else see this?

  I'll start collecting a list to add to the tracker or the etherpad. These
items need to be bug reports if they don't already exist.

  Also, the syntax hilighting files are about 20 behind in the current GIT code.
That item is already on the R14 etherpad as a to-do item.
