Sorry for the delay getting back to you.  I had to track down a
keyboard with multimedia keys -- I use the old fashioned super-clacky
IBM Type M keyboards.  No frills, not even a windows key. :)

The problem was that we were using an old version of the keybinding
code from GNOME before it supported multimedia keys, and that's a
cut-and-pasted chunk of code throughout GNOME.  I just updated it in
svn and confirmed that multimedia keys work with it.

Unfortunately there's no way to get it working without patching the
source.  The relevant revision is r3643.
