I have just upgraded to Fedora Core 3 myself and have the same problem.
It's already been reported to be a problem with the qt-3.3.4 shipped with
FC3 I think.

I may have found a partial solution to the problem. 

In MythPushButton::keyPressEvent() in file mythwidgets.cpp change

if (action == "SELECT")
    emit pressed();
    handled = true;


if (action == "SELECT")
    handled = true;

It seems to work fine everywhere I tried with one exception. In the 
mythmusic playback screen when returning from the popup menu it 
causes a seg fault for me every time. Changing the code back again 
and mythmusic works ok. So it may not be the right solution but at 
least it may give a starting point for someone to workout what's happening
here and come up with a proper fix.

Anybody care to give it a try and report back.
