[IPython-dev] Cntr-s makes cell inactive

I think the behaviour of some keyboard shortcuts has changed recently.
In particular, Cntr-s for saving the notebook renders the cell inactive
(i.e., the cursor is taken away, and the border of the cell becomes
gray). Was this a conscious design decision, or this happened by
accident? I would like to propose that in cases, where it is clear that
one doesn't want to leave the cell when invoking a certain shortcut,
e.g., saving the entire notebook, the cell should not become inactive.
What now happens to me quite often is that I hit Cntr-s, and then b,
which then creates a new cell above, while I actually wanted to type 'b'
in the current cell. I think this was not like this before.
If this was considered, and this is the decision that the developers
arrived at, so be it. Otherwise, I would be happy to issue a PR, if the
core team agrees.
