Default hardware keyboard setting question

So I'm running cyanogen7 and I've run across a weird issue that I'm sure is just a setting that I messed up somewhere. Anytime I try to use the hardware keyboard, weather in a text field or not, there are certain keys bound to certain applications. For example; if I hit 'b' it takes me to the browser, if I hit 'e' it takes me to email. Can anyone tell me where this setting is so I can turn it off? I just can't seem to find it.

Yes this is a common bug that's supposed to be fixed on the last nightly 255 or UKE.

The settings are in settings -> quick launch.

Long press on each one and press delete.

Only way to get around the bug is to reboot without deleting all the shortcuts.

Thank you very much for showing the root of this issue. I had this problem since November and it always bugged me!

It's always bugged me too. I told toastcfh to remove it by default from CM7. I will mention this to one_love_420 and ask him to remove this from UKE since toastcfh is usually too busy to respond.

That is a really annoying bug! But no big deal if a reboot is the fix.

Reboot is only a temporary fix. It constantly happens.
