Do you use Shift-Insert and Control-Insert because other programs
provide the same keys for the same functionality (i.e. copy to the
clipboard and paste from the clipboard)?  In this case, it is more
annoying when these keys don't work as expected in other programs
based on CUA guidelines that specify Shift-Insert and Control-Insert
to work with the clipboard.
