    You mean the keyboard shortcuts set in System Preferences > Keyboard >> Keyboard Shortcuts or in some other preference pane?

    Btw, can you tell us what Mac OS X version you run on what exact Mac?
    And does the same occur on another, even temporarily created, account?
    And how often do you reboot?

    I had the same probles, that was how I managed to fix it:

    This issue is user related, for when I logged as another user, the configuration was ok.

    Solution:
    - Delete or move to another location:
    user_folder/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist
    user_folder/Library/Preferences/ByHost/.GlobalPreferences.plist
    (I think it was the second one)

    I also deleted these files while testing, but I belive it wasn't necessary:
    user_folder/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.systempreferences.plist
    user_folder/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.internetconfigpriv.plist


    The files begining with a dot are hidden, so either use a Terminal or make finder show hidden files:
    - Show hidden files:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
    - Hide hidden files:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
    - Relaunch finder afeter each command to take effect.
    (Of course, you need a terminal to run these commands)
