Arrow key behaviour on selected text

Description (last modified by )
In Haiku, when renaming files in Tracker, or editing text in StyledEdit, the arrow keys don't behave as in BeOS when you've got a text selection.
Pushing the left arrow key should unselect and move the cursor to the left edge of the previously selected text. The right arrow key should move the cursor to the right edge of the selected text.
Windows and MacOS [used to?] have opposite behaviour in this area. BeOS does it the MacOS way. Haiku's behaviour looks incomplete. It looks like it simply moves the last known cursor position once, left or right.
BTextView/BTextControl are likely places to look in.
