Hi, Christian!
Thanks for your attention and for your message about this problem. Honestly I must say that yesterday I have rebuilt the core and tried to fix this thing again without success. I added a line into /etc/modules to load hid_apple module before system starts and modified /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf with the following line:
options hid_apple fnmode=2
with giving configuration file following rights:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 428 2009-12-09 22:13 hid_apple.conf

After all I rebooted the system and tried to re-configure keyboard shortcuts, but nothing changed at all (hid_apple module is loaded and stays in the memory according to lsmod). Did you make anything else in addition to those modifications I described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/227501/comments/22?
