First, thanks for your patches.  I appreciate you taking some time to
look into this matter.

However, we have two different fixes to this, one by you that modifies
the keyboard shortcut, and one by Takeshi (attached to the bugzilla
page) that modifies the key input handler code directly.

It's my opinion that Takeshi's approach is the right one.  Shift
Backspace still needs to clear selection when used while range selection
is active, and your change modifies it, which is not desirable.  Plus
you assigned the key shortcut to Writer's shortcut for some reason.

Takeshi's approach OTOH is limited to the case of direct cell-internal
editing, and modifies the right part of the code which handles direct
key input.

So, I'll take Takeshi's patch for this, but please keep tackling those
easy hacks.
