Heh, totally. I go back to an old game for some reason, and my fingers
know exactly what the Quick Save key is. My brain knows that there are
function keys for quick save and quick load in a lot of programs, but
is never sure which is which (and it'd be pretty bad to hit the wrong
one)... but my fingers always get it right. F1 and F4 for American
McGee's Alice, and F9 and F10 for Captain Bible... F6 in C&C Renegade
(that one's easy, there's no quick load)... Ctrl-X in Angband,
although that doesn't quite count... yep, my fingers know them a lot
better than my brain does.
