I have pushed cset http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/e255897f353d on default with the approach from comment #3.

This issue is still present in 5.1.0. I have tried this in other applications like TeXStudio or Gnome with the same result: Entering Ctrl+Shift+0 results in Ctrl+Shift+= (on a German keyboard). According to this and to some internet sources, this is nothing specific to octave but a general problem.

I am going to prepare a patch with a workaround where the Shift-modifier can be selected by a checkbox.

Version 4.2.1 is deprecated and no longer supported.  Please try with the latest stable release which is 5.1.0.  The problem is likely to have been fixed.

Moreover, no replacement of the numbers should occur because the number is not replaced when the shortcut is used afterwards and therefore is not working.

I'm unable to enter the keybinding Ctrl+Shift+0 by directly typing it in the Enter New Shortcut dialog box; I had to manually type Ctrl+Shift+0.

Entering shortcuts or keybindings that include the Shift modifier works for letters (where it only changes the lower to upper case).  For all other single-digit numbers (123456789) it also works, where the digits get replaced for, respectively, !@#$%^&*(.

Maybe there's something up with the right parenthesis character, ")"?
