What's even more of a pain is that Ctrl-click is a common usage on
Windows (add/subtract single item to/from selection), so the naive
Windows programmer (that's me) designs this into his apps. And his Mac
users have no way to access this function :-(
I guess one approach is to use Shift-click instead - but that means
something different on Windows (extend existing selection up to this
clicked item), darn it !! About once a day I curse this mis-feature
of Rev's IDE on Windows.
(Not that I have a solution - but it still gets a curse :-)
