improve keyboard navigation in the Day Browser

I often have the problem that I am moving through the day browser using the arrow keys and the screen updates are significantly lagging behind my key presses (this happens especially with large screenshots, e.g. from a multi-monitor RDP-session - see my other request). By the time I have found the shot I was looking for, it seems the keyboard buffer has often filled up so much that the day browser skips a couple of frames further (often it's much more than just a couple). I have seen this behaviour on all three machines that I have used TS on so far, all of which were fairly powerful, so shouldn't really have this kind of problem.

So, anything you can do to improve the keyboard navigation "experience" would be great: be it general performance improvements to the screen updates or simply reducing the size of the keyboard buffer (or disabling it altogether), so it will not continue to skip through screenshots after I stopped hitting keys.

    I've recently got this foot-pedal USB device thing which can generate keystrokes, which I was intending to use with the timesnapper 'Browsing day' window in the same way that stenographer / transcription foot-pedals work.

    i.e. have pause/play, rewind / skip using foot pedal operations, all whilst typing a summary into a separate window without having to reach for the mouse to control TimeSnapper.

    I imagine I'll need to code up a helper application to perform these operations but would be good if that was built in to timesnapper.
