Keyboard shortcuts cause seeking through library

Bug Description

When using keyboard shortcuts, it changes the position of the selected track in the library.

For example, if I've got something in channel 1 and I'm seeking forward by holding down S, the highlighted song in the library will then go to the next track whose artist name starts with S, then the next, and keep going down the list of songs, which means I then have to go back to find where I was.

1) Load track into player 1 by right-clicking anywhere on its row in the library (example, right-clicking where song title is displayed)
2) Press D to start track
3) Wherever I right-clicked in the library, the highlighted row will go to the next song whose title starts with "D"

This happens regardless of the shortcut key used. The only way to prevent it is to load a track into the player, then click somewhere other than the library so it loses focus.

I'm having this problem too (1.8.0-beta1, Mac OSX 10.5), and it does it both for the library and search box. I can't get the shortcuts to work at all until I click a control button/knob/fader first; not even clicking the background takes back focus. I believe that Mixxx 1.7 used to automatically take back keyboard focus from the library when you double-clicked a track to load it, that was nicely intuitive.

Bug #217557 is possibly related?

It works fine for the library view, and in crates, but still seeks through in the Analyze view.

Hey Korin,

Nice catch! It should be fixed now.

Hm, it seems that if you hold down a key (ex 'd') in the library, once the key repeat kicks in it seeks through the library very rapidly.

I just added a fix that disables seeking through the library table for any keyboard shortcut (even auto-repeat). This is kind of wonky because keys that are not keyboard shortcuts DO seek through the library.
