Looks like a bug in PyKDE4. The second arg doesn't have a default value 
like in the C++ version. I'll try to get this fixed in 4.0.1.

Add the second arg like this (and close your eyes):

   kdeui.KAction.ShortcutTypes( \
     kdeui.KAction.ShortcutTypes(kdeui.KAction.ActiveShortcut) | \

This fix will work in the future and has the same effect as the fixed 

mmm... it would be nice if PyQt4's QFlags() accepted a uint mask in its 
constructor. If would save a lot of ugly Python code, for the price of a 
little bit of runtime type safety...

Thanks for the great bug report.
