I would have to agree with Andrej here, IMHO this is a usability bug.
The behaviour doesn't make sense (no other GUI driven program I used
so far has a similar approach), is not indicated at all by the GUI and
you didn't give any reason for its existance either.

Yesterday, I was convinced that Claws doesn't let me delete mails via
the keyboard when the message window is open. In other words: the
user interface actually got in the way of doing things, which is the
exact opposite of what the interface is supposed to do.
