It seems the tab feature is still somewhat incomplete. When tabs are  
enabled, a newly opened document should appear in a new tab which  
becomes the selected one. However, this isn't the most critical issue.  
It's just no quite right yet.

It seems that some standard key bindings are broken. For instance, C-x  
C-s doesn't work, but it doesn't mean anything else, so there's no  
reason for it to disappear. I see where there may be a desire for only  
one key binding for an operation, but this used to work fine. Further,  
keybindings like C-c C-s for creating a new section are broken. Not  
all are broken, there are what I've found so far. Since I use them  
repeatedly, they've become very noticeable for me.

Are these things I'm seeing alone, or are others seeing them too?
