Enter Distraction Free Mode Key Shortcut overrides normal Operating System behaviour on OSX

In OSX, option-left and option-right move between words in a body of text. I personally use them a lot. The new distraction free mode keyboard shortcut overrides the option-right shortcut, and throws me off every time I use it.

If someone can point me to the code where I can override this shortcut, that would be sweet, but I thought I should submit this bug report, as this feature overrides core browser and OS behaviour. Which is generally a no-no.

The default keyboard shortcut for opening the "Distraction Free Writing" mode on Mac is "Option+Shift+W", which works fine for me both in WordPress 3.8.1 and in trunk (using Chrome on OS X).
"Option-Left" and "Option-Right" move the cursor before/after the next word, as expected.

What's happening for you when you press "Option+Shift+W"?
Where did you get a "new distraction free mode keyboard shortcut" from? And what is that new shortcut for you?
Can you reproduce this with all plugins deactivated and after switching to a WordPress default theme?

Also can't reproduce on latest Firefox nor latest Safari.

Please ignore me, I'm a muppet. KeyRemapforMacBook was doing weird things.
