I'm currently using fluxbox, which doesn't have any defaults for ALT+n.

Seeing some of the other discussion, it looks like there is talk of
moving to a Ctrl+Pg{Up,Down} to move between tabs.  This is fine, but I
still like the ability to go directly to a specific tab.

As for changing the "modified" status of new files: the default behavior
of Beaver was to set a new file as modified, whether you had actually
made any changes or not.  So, if you opened a blank document, then
closed it without making any changes, it asked you if you wanted to save
it.  I didn't think that was "good" behavior, so I removed it.  I'm
sorry I didn't mention it with the patch submission.

Lastly, you're right about not freeing the memory on "shortcut_key".  I
haven't worked with C in a while, not used to doing my own memory
management! ;)

Thanks for the feedback,

Timothy J. Warren
