The focus part of the bug is a regression on 1.2.6 which gives it some
merit for "promotion" to priority aim-to, but if we were to go through
the aim-to's I expect we'd find quite a few others which were also
regressions. It is a minor irritation even for sighted users if you use
effects a lot, and affects all effects as far as I know. I'd agree with
priority aim-to unless some one disagreed, but it does not mean it
would be done for 1.4. Perhaps if Leland has got time coming on
stream soon he can look at it for us?
The "preview" part of the problem is worse in 1.2. 6 (I cannot find any
effects there where ALT + V works at all), so maybe that should be
called a separate problem.
