   Thanks for the info.  I changed the XkbModel to evdev but the up arrow 
still launches ksnapshot.  Other ideas?

I found a workaround for now; in KDE's control center->Regional & 
Accessibility->Input Actions->Preset Actions; disable the PrintScreen action.   
I would still like to have a real fix though as their may be other keys that 
are messed up I haven't noticed yet.

I can send my xorg.conf file if anyone is interested.
