The keyboard shortcut ctrl-w in console Stata does a seek of the command
history (See [U] 10.4).  Stata for Unix(GUI) was also using this shortcut to
do a seek, but it should not have been.  In a future update, Stata for
Unix(GUI) will ignore this shortcut in the Command window and allow the
default key binding to take effect.  For other windows that support it, ctrl-w
will continue to close the current window.
