Shortcuts on Views focusing issue
The shortcuts on views only work sometime, not immediately after clicking on an item in the view. The item gets selected like I'd expect it to, but the view doesn't get the focus. That's fine if I select a channel in the view and start typing expecting the input to end up in my chat line. It makes the shortcuts on channels very clunky since I need to explicitly focus the view and the channel, and then hit for example backspace. This makes this feature even less discoverable than it already is (I had to ask on IRC ...).

We can't give the view proper focus, because then one needs to click again to type something in the input line. Doing this by way of input filters was tried but had issues.
The proper solution (soonish) will be to make things like "hide current channel" a global application shortcut rather than a view feature.
