ctrl + a => 2 functions

Used search, but didn't find it(maybe i'm just blind). Not sure if it's a bug tho.
But by deafult(without changing keyboard shortcuts etc) ctrl+a has 2 operations. It's "Select All" in playlist but it's also "Always on top" for winamp itself.

So if you press Ctrl + a to select all files in the playlist then winamp goes for "Always on top" and it's kinda annoying.

Winamp ver. 5.5

Correct. It's always been like that.

It's more of an SUI skin glitch than a bug.

Main window -> Ctrl+A = Toggle 'Always on top'
Playlist window -> Ctrl+A = Select All

I guess it's been made a bit trickier in the Bento skin to know which component is actually active at the time, i.e. it's easy to tell which is the active window in all other non-SUI skins like Winamp Modern and Classic.

I never knew why the Winamp 'Always on top' option would occasionally toggle
from FALSE to TRUE on me ... until now.

That IS annoying Bonescraper. Good to know I guess.
I'll be more careful which window is highlighted when using Ctrl+A in the future.

This quirk will also come into play if this wishlist item is ever implemented:
Add Select All (Ctrl+A) Option To Artist & Album Panes Of ML SmartViews
