Bindings conflicting with Hint keys, with modal activation #175

Steps to reproduce:

  • Add both hints and any other command binds with modal key activation to .slaterc, so that at least one of the bindings overlaps one of the hint keys, i.e.:
# Hint, modal activation
bind esc:f1 hint 1234567890QWERTYUIOPASDFGHJKL
# This can be any key from the hint's characters sequence, as long as it uses the same modifier
bind 1:f1 throw 1
  • Activate the hints and try to switch to the window with the conflicting hint ("F1 -> esc -> 1" in the example)

Expected result

The hint works correctly, switching to the window hinted as '1'

Actual result

Nothing happens. For some reason, the second binding inhibits '1' as hint key.

In chorded mode, everything works correctly instead (but I pesonally dislike chorded keystrokes, since they eventually end up conflicting with keyboard shortcuts in an application or another)

o man lol. i thought this would happen when i implemented modal keys and was crossing my fingers for the best since i didn't have enough time to test/debug. i'll take a look.
