I’m not quite sure what the issue is here, this report is for sure incomplete, we'd at the very least need your settings (startup .blend file) from 2.73, and the 'import' result for 2.74.

But please note we simply cannot support gracefully all and any kind of customization during shortcuts conversions, only defaults settings are expected to be 100% handled correctly.

Sorry, here is my settings:

If you watch to Dopesheet you will see what I screenshoted above. I also tried Export and Import my hotkeys as *.py but it also doesnt work.

OK, can confirm the issue… Not sure what's going on here, again, it’s very hard to get something 100% working with such an heavily edited keymap.

Note however, that restoring (in 2.74) keymap to default, and importing the keymap exported from 2.73 seems to work as expected here.

Not sure why it fails during 2.73->2.74 conversion…

The exported keymap:

@Cenek Strichel (cenda), does importing the 2.74 keymap to the latest buildbot version work fine?

It is not still converted with latest build. Some default hotkey override my own.

Hrmpf, not sure what to do with this... It is certainly not sure this is a bug in 2.74, could also be a bug in 2.73 or a conflict between the keymaps, etc. I did however not hear any more complaints that this doesn't work, and since there is a workaround as @Bastien Montagne (mont29) said, it's questionable if it's even worth the time to investigate this. @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton), do you have an opinion on this?

I can confirm that this fails, and has for some time. I always used the workaround @Bastien Montagne (mont29) provided.
The attitude of 'this might not even be worth investigating' is a bit odd, I think. It's something that's broken, and something that's one of the first things a user sees after having upgraded.

Wouldn't consider this a bug. this particular case might be supported for conversion, but hotkey code have quite a few cases when it'll fail miserably.We had reasonable amount of such reports, better to handle them all at once.

Made sure the report is listed in our TODO list:

Thanks for the report, but archiving it as a
