Open DT, none of photos is selected, hover your mouse over photos and press "z" key to zoom. It's working.
Select some photo, delete it (from disk or collection doesn't matter), hover mouse over photos and it's not working.
Zoom (as after DT open) will work again when you select (mouse click) some photo.

Grab focus of main area when the mouse enter it.

After clicking on the left panel or rigth panel, the next key-events
are redirected to those panels. For example after selecting a metadata
entry, moving over the lightable and pusing 'z' (full preview) won't
work. Actually the 'z' is enterred into the metadata entry. The same
applies to all actions on the side panels.

This is because the lighttable widget is not selected anymore and is not receiving the keys. by just clicking on the ligttable (anywhere, even on an empty area) makes the z key working again. I'm not sure how this could be fixed, passing to someone else.
