Actually it was noted that instead of waiting for a fix to be pushed through
QT, they would supply a patch to kdelibs. You can find it linked here:

You'll also note that somebody complained about the following:

The shortcut trigger still says Launch(1), however the fix made pressing the
calculator key work to trigger the event anyway.

That patch is part of the openSUSE packages since 12.2 (even longer in
KDE:Distro:Factory) and it works fine here.
And even you confirmed it is working in comment#22.

So you just want the Calculator key to be assign to launch KCalc by default,

But the response was:

No, "Launch (1)" is how Qt handle this key. If you check the link that I
before you'll see that Qt::Key_Calculator is not mapped in X11 and you must
Qt::Key_Launch1 instead. If you still want it to display "Calculator" please
open a ticket on Qt tracker since I don't think that this is a job to KDE do.

It's just that Qt calls the key "Launch (1)" because "Calculator" is reserved
for something else.
That provoked this KDE bug in the first place, but other than that it is only
cosmetical (i.e. the key is shown as "Launch (1)" in the keyboard shortcut
dialog) and cannot easily be "fixed" because of compatibility.
