Using Control-A to select all doesn't seem to work in Linux. I've seen similar
bugs reported, but all on Microsoft versions with media control. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a message composer window
2. Type something
3. Push CTL-A

Actual Results:  
Nothing

Expected Results:  
All text should've been selected

Well yes, I'd like to see Ctrl+A work too. But the official shortcut for Select
All is Alt+A (see menu) - and that works.

Bug 150627 explains why Ctrl+A is not used for select all on *nix.
