Hi Lex,

I didn't test it but I am pretty sure that loading both KeyBinder and
KeyMapping its not a good idea.

The reason is that both KeyBinder and KeyMapping modifies Squeak's key event
handling so I wouldn't be surprised if both modifications conflicts.

The short-term solution is to not load both. I would suggest to use
KeyMapping instead of KeyBinder because of the fact that it looks more
complete feature-wise. And because when a I did KeyBinder I only meant it as
a proof of concept, not as a real application.

For the long-term I strongly advice to add KeyBinder's or KeyMapping's patch
to the official squeak kernel.
