Another situation is that * command does not work anymore properly with 2
keybs if you want to move focus from r1 to r2
All this is caused by focus handling that now is controlled by the keys you
are pressing skipping regoular focus routine for 1 keyb setting.

> Hello Chris,

> Hope you can implement some exceptions to the keyboard assignment so that
