When utilizing the feature where you can access Tabs 1-9 using ctrl + # (1-9), if you have more than 9 tabs, let's say 12, when you press Ctrl 9, it goes to the very last tab (the 12th).

Not too big of an issue, but quite annoying.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just Press Ctrl + 9 when you have 9 tabs
2. Repeat Step 1, but with 10+ tabs.
3.

Actual Results:  
Went to last tab instead of the 9th tab.

Expected Results:  
Should just go to the 9th tab.

Computer recently crashed...but restored with chkdsk. Doubt this has ANY impact.
Installed Bon Echo three days after it came out.
I'm almost certain this must be a conscious change in BonEcho (Firefox 2) as firefox 1.0 and 1.5 go strictly 1-9 and stop there. With 10 or more tabs being able to access the last tab is more useful than some random middle tab right next to another tab (the 8th) you can access directly. If you have fewer than 9 tabs ctrl-9 still goes to the last one. (Can't use Ctrl-0 for "last" because that's already used to reset text zoom.)

I'll let the front-end guys chime in, but this is certainly not a security bug.
