I can't reproduce this with vlc 1.1.5 on FreeBSD with e16 as window
manager. I occasionally lose the shortcuts in other situations, though.

Usually they work at the beginning, but stop working after toggling
full screen on/off and switching desktops a few times. I haven't been
able to intentionally reproduce it yet.

Also I never had F do something other than either working
as expected or doing nothing.

Usually I get the shortcuts back after toggling full screen
mode on/off (by double clicking the video panel).
Does that work for you, too?

Trying to reproduce the problem by following your description
I noticed that none of of the "Recent Media" had actually
recently been used. Apparently the list only gets updated
when opening media through the GUI, while I usually use the
command line. Is this expected?
