This is somewhere on our list already.  Perhaps we can do this as part
of our current redesign work.

Looks like it's confused by the shift-alt-e binding for move-editor-to-
new-window (in 'normal' editor mode).  Yes, indeed, return of the infernal
key binding bugs associated with the shift key.  I've added it as a
high-priority item.  You can work around it by editing the keymap.normal
file in your installation to comment out or alter problem bindings.

The editor shouldn't take focus, although the search manager does by
default do incremental search so would select text in the editor.  This
must be the result of some focus policy stuff in your X setup.  Perhaps it
gives focus to the X selection owner?
