Sounds like an editor thing. Reassign to brade.

This looks like the key binding for Next Unread Message that I added last week. I can pull that code out, it was in there so that we could track down the bug that was keeping it from working. It looks like it only affected the text input fields but did not make it to the menu it was connected to. Taking bug.

Fix checked in. Removed key binding for Next Unread Message because it causes this problem. We need to redo the way key events are handled to add this key binding back in for the Next Unread Message menu item, but that is another bug...
