Can Shortcuts Be Made To Work In Rename Dialog?

Inside the rename dialog in Resharper 5.1, the shortcut for Edit.DeleteToWordStart does nothing, and the typical Ctrl-Backspace does worse than nothing, it makes a little "undefined character" box appear. This is extremely annoying.

Is it possible to make movement and edit shortcuts work inside the refactor rename dialog?

I use an emacs-style set of movement shortcuts, and it is very irritating to have to move my hands down to the arrow keys or mouse just to rename a function, then doubly annoying to re-discover that Ctrl-Backspace doesn't even work, but instead adds characters . I suspect it cannot be fixed without modifying the source, but I thought I would ask.

I attached a snapshot of me hitting Ctrl-Backspace again by accident this morning. Image of me shaking my fist in rage not included.

Hello Steve,

This is a known problem and at the moment there's no way to make those commands
work. We'll try addressing this problem in one of the future releases. Thank
you!
