not sure, but i think at some point ardour stopped forwarding key events 
to the editor when your mixer window or some other ardour widget had 
focus. sometimes it's really subtle, such as when on your second display 
the log window pops up because of a problem, it might seem your editor 
has stopped responding to shortcuts.

i'm saying not sure because i've been playing with window manager 
settings a while back (focus follows mouse vs. click-to-focus and "newly 
created window has focus")...
