GPA has many different ways to show keys.  IMHO the selection box which
pops up in GPA, if run as a UI-server, can't figure out the key to use.
I have always thought that this is better than the the standard GPA
frontpage, which shows all keys; despite that the most common operation
then is trying to locate the right key.  A search box would make much
more sense here.  However, changing such a common UI might result in a
lot of negative comments - people love what they once learned.

Yes, I am interested in your findings.
