I can reproduce this very annoying behaviour. I have to refocus the
image window in order to get TAB to work again, and basically gave up
on using TAB at all. Platform: Arch Linux (i686), GTK 2.16.5, Window
Manager: AwesomeWM 3.3

I believe my WM always focuses the newly shown window, which may
reflect on this behaviour.

I can't reproduce this; all keyboard shortcuts work as expected,
except where they conflict (for example, when a text-entry field like
palette or color name is in focus, you have to be able to type o as an
ordinary letter). May be Windows-only.
