When I'm composing a message and use an external editor (like I'm
doing now, using Emacs) the Edit menu in the menu bar is greyed out.
I would expect that the shortcut keys that correspond to the greyed out
entries (like C-c C-x C-a C-v) are no longer handled by Claws, but passed
to the embedded editor.

However, Claws still intercepts (and ignores) them, so the embedded editor
can not use them.
