[kepler-dev] Search key

I've been noticing the same issue regarding using the backspace key in the
data or actor tab (backspacing because you might have typed your query
incorrectly).  If there is anything selected on the canvas, it is deleted
when the backspace key is hit even though the focus is in the data or actor

Thanks for more clearly specifying the bug.  I was able to duplicate it 
in both the actor and data search panel using the backspace, but not the 
delete key.  I wonder if this isn't a Ptolemy-interaction problem as 
opposed to a bug in the actor and data panel ... For some reason, the 
canvas is interpreting events prior to the current component focus.
