shortcut keys rarely working

Trevor has tracked down a very bothersome engine bug that seems to  
isolate the problem: FOCUS. Once a Rev application (the IDE is an  
application, btw) has a bunch of nested groups, the engine has to be  
coerced into knowing what the focused object (field) really is. This  
is where the keystrokes "go." And sometimes even coercion does not  
work. Based on Trevor's detective work, I'm starting to believe this  
is an engine bug--which has been reported and which is being worked on  
presently by the lads and lasses in Scotland.

Perhaps Mr. T or others in the know would care to comment.
