Thanks; I had actually previously tried manually unpacking and re-packing
the omni.ja file, but the step to remove the startupCache was new to me.
I'm afraid the patch still didn't seem to work for me. I have the Shortkeys
extension installed and set to block Ctrl+W, but the tab still closed when
I pressed the dreaded shortcut. So I guess there's still something I'm
missing. But never mind - the solution using KWin to filter input to the
window should work just fine for me for the time being. (At least until
everything moves to Wayland :p)
