on mac os x, you have first to activate it.
i can look it up tomorrow at the office, if necessary!

btw, there are two changes that are a must on os x if you want to use
the keyboard instead of the keyboard:
- allow < and > to switch among the windows of a single app
- allow to use keys to select buttons.
both are will hidden somewhere in the preferences, i think in the
keyboard preferences.

there are efforts going on to catch where useless changes are tracked...
