Keyboard shortcuts are applied on current hovered image not active selection
Stumbled accross this one when trying to remove duplicates of images.
If multiple images are selected in the lighttable (with CTRL + click), the click to target (add label, modify title, etc) will apply on the selected images.
However, the keyboard shortcuts only apply to the hovered image, unless this same hovered image is part of the selection.

This is more a feature than a bug. This is the only sane way to make hovering and selection work more or less well together. If the keyboard shorcut's actions are applied to selection when the selection is out of the view, it is not obvious if it worked or not. So the way to solve this is only apply to selection if one of the images of the selection is hovered, or to the hovered image if it is not part of the selection.
