These should all be done soon (before 1.1 final).  You can change
keymap.normal yourself in your installation, to work around the last one
for now.  We'll probably change the default mapping to something more
compatible with that type of keyboard.

Oops... bad Windows-specific off-by-one bug.

We'll have to look at these.  I've added them as candidates for 1.2 but
the COM stuff is probably further off.

This should be in version 1.2.

It should be coming up... may be a bug or could be that you've altered the
debug.raise-window-on-break preference?  Also, can't you go to the
debugger window and double click on the lowest stack frame?  That's at
least an easier work-around if there is a bug that's preventing display of
the window.  If that also doesn't work, something more serious is wrong.

The source windows should close if you close the project from the Project
menu, unless you set the preference proj.close-also-windows to false...
but we don't interpret closing the project manager as meaning close the
project or quit the app.  I'm guessing that would be a mistake, although
it's not hard to add a configurable option for this.
