Hi Mike, I just found out it's slightly more complex than that but the 
complexity is logical.  Just keying in -2 or s-ret where the cursor is 
positioned does nothing in the case of s-ret and says minibuffer is read 
only the cursor shows up on line 25 and to the left of an = sign.  However 
when I move the cursor to the right of the = sign, and then type -2 <ret> 
I return to the org table and the date has moved back two days from the 
current date as it should.  I wouldn't change anything about this behavior 
since positioning the cursor to the left of the = sign when it lands in 
the virtual calendar is a safety feature giving you one more chance to 
think before you do an operation.
