shortcut keys rarely working

It's beyond copy, cut, paste at this point on my machine.  Select all,  
commenting/uncommenting, saving, opening/closing message box,  
everything that should work more often than not doesn't.   The only  
way I can get anything done is to use the menubar.  All shortcuts seem  
to be shortcircuited... not always, but more often than not.  Anyone  
else experiencing behavior like this?

I'm using Leopard, Rev 2.8 and 2.9, GLX2.

I read somewhere that there is a possible corruption of the  
preferences file that can get in the way of things, but I'm wondering  
if a complete reinstall is not the best answer.
Thanks,
Mark
