I'm having a difficult time toggling windows and holding CTRL to target things. I have to often let off the key and then re-press it to enable locking. It's very frustrating.

What's even more frustrating is that I use my mouse button 4 to use comms, and if that's pressed then all my shortcuts are ignored.

Is anybody experiencing similar issues?

Less.

I've also noticed that they're quite contingent on where your "window focus" is at the moment. If the current focus is on a text entry field or drop down box or something similar, it will take precedence over the shortcut, so any key that could be used for that UI control will go into the control and to the shortcut.

Eg. #1
I'm in a chat window and want to open my wallet to check on something, I can't use my Alt-W shortcut to do so because the W gets fed into the chat box and isn't caught by/doesn't trigger the shortcut.

Eg. #2.
Focus is on the People & Places window, and I'm fiddling around with my target switching shortcuts (Alt-→, Alt-←), the window will catch the left/right-arrow keys and pop down the drop-down list, and I'm still on the same target.

This gets even worse in OSX, where pretty much every conceivable key combination is used to create various odd glyphs (Alt-Shift-D for ∆ for instance, Alt-A for ), which means that if my current focus is on a text box, it will catch that keystroke and think I want to type the character, rather than trigger the shortcut… Quitting through Alt-Shift-Q requires me to make sure nothing that might resemble a text input window is in focus.

As I said earlier in a thread I created:

When you have a shortcut modifier key (CTRL , ALT _or_ SHIFT) pressed and you click on another client window the window focus IS NOT released / moved, this is VERY annoying.

Also I just noticed (and bugreported it), the shortcut for showing / hiding celestials is gone, there's no way to use that functionality since you can't assign a shortcut to it. It simply doesn't exist anymore :(
