While mini-search is active, ctrl-w pastes the current word from
the editor into the mini-search buffer.  It shouldn't conflict
w/ closing tabs unless you want to use ctrl-w to do that while

This is an emacs behavior that we left enabled in all keyboard modes
but may need to disable if it does get in the way (please let us know
if so).
