worx :)

starting from scratch, Ctrl Q does nothing. 
Log entry:

[AA] Key event:  <control>q (0x71)
[AA] Handling key event by view.in_left_pane()

Assigning the new action with key manager, Ctrl Q quits with

[AA] Key event:  <control>q (0x71)
[AA] Handling key event by file.exit()

It's a good thing to have that fixed, or rather, a good thing is a file manager 
where you basically can do anything with keys. Recently i worked with nautilus 
on a fresh netbook ubuntu install and i'm working with dolphin on my laptop, 
since months. With small screens or even only a touchpad, you need awful lots 
of time for difficult precision mouse tasks. I have a precise wired razor 
gaming mouse at my PC and still i like to do it with keys whenever it has to be 
very safe.

I bet most people just do not recognize it as they don't realize there's any 
alternative. Keys are just faster. And to have only a rudimentary set is as 
good as none. Yes you can assign your own set in the KDE key manager, but hey, 
even only to understand what the translated strings mean is a task of hours...a 
full default set is much better.

The best thing of all, of course, is dynamic shortcuts...
