[IPython-dev] Cntr-s makes cell inactive

Thanks for the reply! I will try to find a fix, then.

A somewhat related question: when the notebook is busy for a long time, 
the html title reflects this state, but only till the first autosave. 
I.e., the title switches from 'mynotebook (Busy)' to 'mynotebook', when 
the autosave runs. I think this should happen only, when the kernel 
becomes idle. Would you agree? I can try to get to the bottom of this, too.
