It's pretty tricky to type IN ALL CAPS in the Scratchpad these days because Shift-Space makes the type info window appear, so you can't just hold down Shift.

Maybe no yelling is a feature? :) It seems strange to bind a key combo that is part of normal text entry.  Maybe it should be Ctrl-Shift-Space?
Totally agree.

This bites me even when I do not have to yell, but just have to write an object like

var a = {
 foo: "asd"
     ^----- At this point when I press space, most of the time in speed typing,
            my finger is still on shift key while my thumb goes ahead and presses
            space which leads to opening up of the info bubble :(
Changes key to Ctrl-Shift-Space.
