Description

This is hrev50749.

I suspect this has been true for a long time, but I never noticed:
For me CTRL+I does the same as CTRL+TAB, i.e. it switches between applications and summons the Twitcher window when held.

That can't be right. Some app may use that key combo. Like vim does for... already forgot it, like most of vim shortcuts. :)

Just in case, here's the code calling the Twitcher/Switcher:

Ctrl+I emits a TAB character. It is used in vim to... insert a TAB character.

How to tell:

So in the same way, control+H is backspace, control+J is a newline, etc.

If you dislike these, you can remove them from your keymap.

A few of them don't have direct access key (for example control+L = page break) and are sometimes used (in old C sources or manpages, finding a page break is not completely uncommon).
