They are supposed to select the user's home directory in the first pane. I have confirmed that with Howard, since I wasn't able to make it work here (I remembered that trick from its guide).

So, the issue lies within the text system : for us non-US users, there are a few (or loads, depends on the keyboard) keys that can be used to 'accent' other keys (like ~, ` ^, ¨, for things like ñ, ö, ï). It works by first typing the accent, then typing the letter to 'accent'. The problem is that the text system waits for the second character, and this makes the shortcut fail.

Workaround, either press the accent 2 times, or follow with a space (so that the accent gets entered, QS sees that and perform the shortcut).
