I am not a good typist.  There is some horrible key combination, which I can not imagine what it is, that causes an hour of an email composition to completely disappear.  It is gone,  It is nowhere. It evaporates, and I am ready to commit mayhem.  How can I learn what maniacal thing is "helping" me and disable it???
  (I am limited on upgrades, haven't had time.  Firefox is not entirely the answer, and I still wonder if it would do this same evil thing.)


Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type a long email late at night.
2.Continue typing.
3.Try to calm yourself when it all disappears.

Actual Results:  
If I could reproduce it, I would probably be able to prevent it.


Ha.

Ctrl-W closes the composition window, but it puts up a confirmation dialog first.

Resolving INCOMPLETE. Jim, if ever you find out what key combination wiped your text, please REOPEN with an appropriate comment.

Note: Ctrl+A (Select All) followed by any printable key is "supposed" to replace whatever you typed until then by the new character.
